Coming This July, The Reality Capture Technology Training Center will host our second annual summer technology camp at History Park in San Jose. The week long camp provides participants with hands on experience using state of the art laser scanning and photogrammetry technology to digitally document the historic buildings and artifacts at History Park. The data from the buildings and artifacts documented by the student/participants becomes part of the History San Jose archives and will eventually be featured in a major 3D exhibition.

Our goals are as follows, Goal One (1);to establish a sustainable technology training center and resource for our students and educators. Goal Two (2);to inspire students to pursue higher education and/or find a career path through local labor organizations. Goal Three (3) to digitally document the architecture, property and history of San Jose.
Much of the documentation of our historic buildings and artifacts are done by students and interns, under the supervision of industry professionals.
