Subject: ISPRS WGII/9 TUTORIAL - Underwater photogrammetry: methods and challenges for mapping and monitoring


Dear friends and colleagues,


As part of the working group WGII/9 activities of the ISPRS - International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing, we are organizing the tutorial:


“Underwater photogrammetry: methods and challenges for mapping and monitoring”


June 5, 2022 at the XXIV ISPRS congress in Nice, France.


The tutorial aims at providing the audience with an introduction to the crucial aspects of underwater photogrammetry, as key technique for studying and understanding the underwater world in many application fields, such as exploration and mapping, industry, metrology, archeology, biology, etc.


Specifically, the following topics will be covered:


  • Image formation underwater: optical considerations
  • Photographic aspects: light absorption, scattering, depth dependent white balance and color correction
  • Flat vs Dome ports (from optical to geometric influences in underwater photogrammetry)
  • Underwater camera calibration approaches: implicit vs explicit modelling
  • Reference systems, accuracy assessment and method of controls with scale bars, underwater geodetic measurements, acoustic positioning systems, pressure and inertial sensors, laser based optical scaling
  • Platforms for underwater photogrammetry, from surface vehicles to scuba divers to ROVs and AUVs
  • Underwater visual odometry and SLAM
  • Mono, stereo and multi camera systems
  • Two media bathymetric photogrammetry
  • Overview of applications: needs and approaches in archeology, ecology, metrology and industry.


The attendees will 'dive' into the addressed topics and practice with provided datasets, off-the-shelf software applications and in-house developed algorithms. Participants are also encouraged to bring their own datasets, showcase their applications and discuss issues faced in their practices.

Resources that will be distributed: all the teaching material (i.e. the PowerPoint presentations, image datasets, python codes).


Target audience: PhD students, researchers and practitioners

Level: beginner to intermediate

Duration: 4h – afternoon session (physical presence)


Those interested to the tutorial can register at the following link https://www.isprs2022-nice.com/index.php/participate-submit/#register


Early bird registration deadline March 11, 2022


Please circulate the info among your colleagues and anyone who might be interested.


On Behalf of WGII/9 officers,

Best regards,
