A system for building georeferenced maps of ice along a ship's path is being developed using ship mounted digital cameras. The integration with the ship's motion sensors along with careful consideration of the camera's geometric parameters are key components in producing high quality maps which maximise coverage. This presentation will cover some of the concepts behind the geoCamera as well as highlighting some results from deployments in both Antarctica and the Arctic.


Before joining CCOM/JHC in 2000, Roland Arsenault received his Bachelor's degree in Computer Science and worked as a research assistant with the Human Computer Interaction Lab at the Department of Computer Science, University of New Brunswick.

As a member of the Data Visualisation Research Lab, he combines his expertise with interactive 3D graphics with his experience working with various mapping related technologies to help provide a unique perspective on some of the challenges undertaken at CCOM/JHC.
