Visual is a visualization system used to access and analyze high-volume multi-sensor data collected from remotely operated underwater vehicles. Since 1991, scientists have used Visual for scientific visualization and analysis of underwater surveys ranging from real-time survey monitoring, to geological mapping and interpretation of hydrothermal vent sites, to a forensic study of a shipwreck. This report describes Visual's capabilities and gives examples of typical applications for Visual including sonar visualization, real-time monitoring, and multi-sensor data access and analysis. This report also includes a User's Manual and Reference Guide for the Visual system.

Tactical decisions for changeable cuttlefish camouflage : visual cues for choosing masquerade are relevant from a greater distance than visual cues used for background matching Buresch, Kendra C.; Ulmer, Kimberly M.; Cramer, Corinne; McAnulty, Sarah; Davison, William; Mathger, Lydia M.; Hanlon, Roger T. (Marine Biological Laboratory, 2015-10-01)Cuttlefish use multiple camouflage tactics to evade their predators. Two common tactics are background matching (resembling the background to hinder detection) and masquerade (resembling an uninteresting or inanimate object ...
Kunz, Clayton G.; Singh, Hanumant (2012-10)We present a system for automatically building 3-D maps of underwater terrain fusing visual data from a single camera with range data from multibeam sonar. The six-degree of freedom location of the camera relative to the ...
