Red tide photogrammetry in Mexico

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Just a quick note on our sea surface monitoring project. We are working with a group in Ensenada, Mexico to apply our camera system (designed for oil spill mitigation) to a red tide monitoring project. The images below show a dry run, so there is no red tide present, but stay tuned. If this project gets off the ground, it would be a neat application of our system.

The ground control points (x's and o's) are just eyeballed in this rectification, so there is noticeable error, particularly with the middle point.  This is something I hope to improve upon.  Also, we hope to cover more area with multiple cameras.
