Section: Other Grants and Activities
We are involved in two projects:
COM, Région Pays-de-la-Loire (2000-2006)
The Atlas group participates in the COM project funded by the ``Region des Pays de la Loire'' (2000-2006). The objective of the COM project is to promote research in computer science in the region, in particular the creation of LINA (Laboratoire d'Informatique de Nantes Atlantique), a UMR between CNRS, University of Nantes and École des Mines de Nantes.
GeoPict, Mégalis, Région Pays-de-la-Loire (2005-2006)
GeoPict is a joint project between Magic Instinct Software, a startup in Nantes, and three research teams at LINA and IRCCyN. The motivation is to take advantage of high-speed networks in order to create new services to transmit huge amounts of information such as multimedia data. The goal of the project is to provide an on-line service to access and visualise geo-referenced videos connected to a geographic information system (namely, the register – cadastre –of each city). More precisely, videos are recorded at 360 degrees while driving along the streets of a city. This information has to be stored, connected to the geographic database thanks to the spatial positioning recorded during the travelling. Next, the video information must be mixed with 3D geographical models in order to reconstruct panoramic views at any point in the city, as well as virtual reality trips.
