Journal Article
of submerged archaeological sites. International Journal of Nautical Archaeology, 46(2), doi:10.1111/1095-9270.12240. ISSN 1057-2414

This paper reports the results of using a sector scan sonar to record a range of submerged archaeological sites in both shallow and deep water locations. The Kongsberg MS 1000 sector scan sonar was developed for the commercial sector typically to car... Read More

High-resolution underwater robotic vision-based mapping and three-dimensional reconstruction for archaeology (2016)
Journal Article
Johnson-Roberson, M., Bryson, M., Friedman, A., Pizarro, O., Troni, G., Ozog, P., & Henderson, J. C. (in press). High-resolution underwater robotic vision-based mapping and three-dimensional reconstruction for archaeology. Journal of Field Robotics, doi:10.1002/rob.21658. ISSN 1556-4959

Documenting underwater archaeological sites is an extremely challenging problem. Sites covering large areas are particularly daunting for traditional techniques. In this paper, we present a novel approach to this problem using both an autonomous unde... Read More
