Paper Abstract

The National Geographic Society has used its first set of 3-D video cameras to produce tapes of deep sea creatures from down further than a mile. We are presently building a second miniaturized set of cameras to be mounted on ROVs. The tapes are being introduced to the scientific community and used by the Geographic in educational displays. The StereoGraphic system that we employ will display both video or computer CAD material. We are using this second ability to produce 3-D video stereo of a wire model of a shipwreck surveyed in situ with a SHARPS system. We are looking at taking this data and producing a hologram.
