3D-imaging tech being used to map aquaculture sites in Scotland
A project funded by the Sustainable Aquaculture Innovation Centre (SAIC) is trialing the use of a new 3D digital modeling system to map out and monitor complex marine environments and habitats, with the aim of supporting Scottish seafood producers.
Using remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) and underwater imaging technology, a team of experts plan to create digital twins of the seabed. The project is being led by Oban-based Tritonia Scientific; with support from the Lyell Centre at Heriot-Watt University, seafood producer Mowi, and SAIC …
