3D modeling of floating or semi-submerged objects is a challenging and attractive task for the marine industry especially if the manufacturing of components that have to be replaced or repaired after a damage is necessary or the ship itself has to be converted. Up to now the 3D reverse engineering of ships has required docking operations to carry out a geodetic or photogrammetric survey with high costs for shipowners. In this paper an innovative 3D acquisition method for digital recording of floating objects is presented. The method is based on digital photogrammetry both underwater and terrestrial. Preliminary tests are presented for the case study of a 19-foot motor boat.

Abstract

3D modeling of floating or semi-submerged objects is a challenging and attractive task for the marine industry especially if the manufacturing of components that have to be replaced or repaired after a damage is necessary or the ship itself has to be converted. Up to now the 3D reverse engineering of ships has required docking operations to carry out a geodetic or photogrammetric survey with high costs for shipowners. In this paper an innovative 3D acquisition method for digital recording of floating objects is presented. The method is based on digital photogrammetry both underwater and terrestrial. Preliminary tests are presented for the case study of a 19-foot motor boat. Two surveys of the boat in floating conditions are carried out and then joined by means of special rigid orientation devices built ad hoc.
