Recent years have seen remarkable advances in sonar technology, positioning capabilities, and computer processing power that have revolutionized the way we image the seafloor. The massive amounts of data produced by these systems present many challenges but also offer tremendous opportunities in terms of visualization and analysis. The authors have developed a suite of interactive 3D visualization and exploration tools specifically designed to facilitate the interpretation and analysis of very… Expand

TLDR
Methods for estimating and minimizing error in derived bathymetry data, as well as smoothing data for presentation and visualization are discussed, and examples of AUV operator tools that exploit fast gridded topography calculation in order to present data to the user are shown. Expand
Explorative coastal oceanographic visual analytics : oceans of data
TLDR
This thesis explores a visualization and visual analytics solution for predictive studies of coastal shelf and estuarine modelled, hydrodynamics undertaken to understand sea level rise, as a contribution to wider climate change studies, and to underpin coastal zone planning, flood prevention and extreme event management. Expand
Dealing with increasing data volumes and decreasing resources
TLDR
An overview of the new approach and data results and metrics of the effort required to process data, including editing, quality control, and product generation for multibeam data utilizing targets from digital imagery data and automated techniques is presented. Expand
