Ph.D. Student, Computer Science and Engineering, UCSD
Vid Petrovic received a BS in Computer Science and Engineering as well as a MS in Computer Graphics and Visualization from UC Irvine. His research focuses on developing a system that visualizes LIDAR data to create three-dimensional replicas of sites that CISA3 is currently working on. Petrovic collects data from a site, renders that data into a visual form on a computer, and then creates an image that can be observed from various angles, light levels, and distances from a separate location. The system that Petrovic is developing allows an objective record of the site to be preserved for future study. Continued research in this field is imperative in keeping with the CISA3 goal of building a future for our past.
