Not bad to receive 4 small grants at the beginning of the year ! However, I am most interested about the Pelagios-Working Group funding.
We have received £3,940 (approx. 7250 AUD) for a one day event on geo-humanities and Australian Cultural heritage. The grant will pay for national speakers (a flight to Perth and two nights hotel).In parallel, we will also arrange a round table at Digital Humanities Australia 2018 conference (Making Connections: https://aa-dh.org/conferences/dha-2018/) with the results, plus address questions raised with the design and testing of free course material and resources available online, leading to a white paper submitted to UNESCO. Our focus will be on a major workshop hosted at Curtin, Friday 26 July, on Linked Open Data, and Pelagios and Recogito, on how they can be used, modified and extended for key Australian datasets and research problems. We aim to gather the many small geo-humanities / digital humanities mapping projects and themes in Australia to create resources and tutorials to develop Pelagios and Recogito for specific Australian datasets.
World largest digital heritage event is upcoming – “Digital HERITAGE 2018”
Evenet theme this time is New Realities: Authenticity & Automation in the Digital Age
3rd International Congress & Expo, 26-30 October 2018, San Francisco, USA

This tutorial has been developed keeping in mind the beginners/non technical persons interested in making 3D digital models of artifacts, objects, buildings, excavation etc. from photos and want to share them online.
I have studied various popular commercial and free and open source software (FOSS) to find a robust, easy to learn, scalable model building environment. The comparison study is gong to be publisded soon. Based on my study, I have the most accurate 3D with easy and convenient workflow can be achieved through Regard3D – MeshLab – Sketchfab.
I am sharing this tutorial here as a .pdf file. Feel free to download and share with others.
Google unveils ARCore, its answer to Apple’s ARKit,, which allows augmented reality to hundreds of millions of Android phones, and no Tango required. From the demos on the web, it seems ARKit provides superior qualities. However, Apple is always within a closed eco-sytem; unreachable to many (like me ). However, I am really worried about these 2 devices recently announced from Lenevo and Asus. All their pain in vain now. So frastrating to the developers and manufacturers.

I have been wondering whether it is possible to develop 3D from Street view. Yes, some clever people already tried it and succeeded.
