Side-scan sonar for fish habitat mapping

Sonar images from Jordan Lake
This workshop will cover basic approaches for collecting and displaying side-scan sonar data. 

Specific aims are:

1. Field approaches for getting good quality snapshots and recordings of side-scan data

2. Low-cost and free software for basic processing of side-scan images

3. Steps for displaying side-scan images in Google Earth or a GIS program (ArcGIS).


For a more elaborate approach that provide very high-quality images, see the web site and publications of Kaeser and Litts.
