Roshan has been with the Zamani Project for 13 years. His role in the team has centered around creating textured 3D computer models using data from terrestrial laser scans and structure from motion (SfM), and creating the panoramic photography used in the Zamani Project’s panorama tours. Other components of his work include writing software for the 3D modelling pipeline, and metadata creation and management. Roshan teaches programming in the Geomatics department at UCT.
Roshan has done extensive fieldwork to gather spatial data in 14 countries in Africa, the Middle East and Asia. His long term interests include the fields of machine learning, AI and 3D printing and modelling.
