Abstract

There are several approaches for 3 dimensional mapping of the seafloor in the actual colours, many of which require multiple cameras, elaborate algorithms and specially designed vehicles. In this paper a method is presented, which uses minimal equipment and simple algorithms for this task, while treating the data in a fully 3 dimensional way from input to output. Because of the reduced hardware demands, it is well suited for combined missions, where the underwater vehicle records some other data as primary task and the map created with the proposed method acts as a support for visualising that data and the environment where it was collected.
