Perspective Detective


13:00, Friday 24 Sep., in the Archway 2 lecture theatre


How do you measure the features of a 3D object from just one photograph? Strictly speaking you cannot do it. But if you have a little extra information about the object, you can learn more than you would think.

I show how we can use a knowledge of symmetry to get accurate measurements of items of ancient pottery from existing photographs.
