Lab Director Dr. Laura Harrison will discuss a case study from coastal Florida, showcasing high-resolution simulations using terrestrial and aerial lidar, and GIS to address the impacts of rising sea levels on vulnerable heritage sites. This research aims to promote sustainable tourism and protect natural and cultural heritage in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Welcome to Access 3D Lab
Access 3D lab is the leading destination for research and training in advanced digital technologies.
We digitize lighthouses, artifacts, islands, skeletal remains (including dinosaur skulls), totem poles, live humans, art galleries, and much more.
We leverage cutting-edge 3D scanners and drones for advanced research and social good. This means preserving at-risk cultural heritage sites with lidar, revitalizing urban districts with augmented reality, transforming early childhood education with 3D printing and virtual reality, and pioneering geospatial workflows for smart cities.
ARTours Clearwater is a new mural experience that uses augmented reality to make four murals along a 0.7-mile route through downtown Clearwater burst to life with interactive animations. The project brings together USF's technical expertise in 3D scanning and video game design with Clearwater's vision of creating vibrant urban streetscapes that weave together art and technology.
