Recent and current research in the Ocean Systems Laboratory of Heriot-Watt University has focused on enabling the full exploitation of video data in underwater surveys. Genetic and specific data mining algorithms are developed to reduced the bulk and redundancy of a typical mission video record to be analyzed. The coupling of the video data, either raw or processed, with other sensor data that it complements is enabled through a georeferenced information system, See-Track, which organizes the data within a database and displays it through a powerful graphical user interface. This system further enables automatic processing of the sensor data and their fusion.
