Perspectives

The participants of the PADI Underwater Survey Diver distinctive speciality course will be familiarized with the application of the basic procedures for the completion of an underwater survey that includes a combination of skills before, during and after the dive. As a consequence of the compliance with these procedures, is the establishment of a protocol for the recording of underwater features so that the resulting data can then be used towards the mapping and 3D visualizations

So, it is attempted a direct connection to surveying, photogrammetry and cartography. In such a way, students that are not diving may be able to participate in the theoretical part of the course. Additionally, it is offered the possibility for targeted knowledge development in more specialized subjects related to the sea environment such as geology, oceanology, marine biology, underwater engineering and constructions etc.
