Rugosity, slope and aspect from bathymetric stereo image reconstructions

  title={Rugosity, slope and aspect from bathymetric stereo image reconstructions},
  author={Ariell Friedman and Oscar Pizarro and Stefan B. Williams},
  journal={OCEANS'10 IEEE SYDNEY},
This paper demonstrates how multi-scale measures of rugosity, slope and aspect can be derived from fine-scale bathymetric reconstructions created using geo-referenced stereo imagery collected by an Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV). We briefly describe the 3D triangular meshes generated from the stereo images and then present a detailed overview of how rugosity can be derived by considering the area of triangles within a window and their projection onto the plane of best fit. By obtaining the… CONTINUE READING
