Paper Abstract

Although stereo photogrammetry has long been a valuable tool in aerial photography, (1) the application of this technique to underwater situations has not yet come into widespread use. (2) With the present availability of underwater cameras and deep submergence vehicles,, this situation will surely change. For example, the Westinghouse DEEPSTARS 2,000, 4,000, and 20,000 permit mounting of underwater lights and cameras with rigid stereo (i.e. camera to camera) baselines in excess of 10 ft.
