Paper Abstract

CZMIL is a new airborne mapping and imaging system designed to simultaneously produce high resolution 3D images of the beach and shallow water seafloor, and to achieve benthic classification and water column characterization. It is designed to have high performance in shallow, turbid waters. The Data Acquisition System (DAS) is composed of a new bathymetric lidar integrated with a commercial imaging spectrometer and digital metric camera. The Data Processing System (DPS) employs new algorithms and software designed to automatically produce environmental image products by combining data from the three sensors within a data fusion paradigm. CZMIL is specifically designed to meet the requirements of the USACE Coastal Mapping Program, and is scheduled to enter field trials in the spring of 2011.
