PADI Underwater Survey Diver

Several diving skills are combined during an underwater survey and new tasks are introduced in the dive plan. Adequate planning, simplification and delegation of tasks as well as teams’ preparation and proper use of special equipment are essential for a dive towards the mapping or the 3D modeling of underwater features.  The development of knowledge and skills for the planning, the teams’ preparation and the proper use of special equipment for an underwater survey is the scope of this course.

Post-diving procedures for processing of survey data towards the mapping or the creation of 3D models are beyond the purpose of this introductory course but they are also described as an optional chapter of the knowledge development for those who have a special interest in mapping and 3D modeling. That is, even non – divers with such an interest may be involved in this optional part of the course.
