Mining the Video Annotation and Reference System (VARS) for science insights

Project Manager: Bill Ussler
Lead Scientist: Charlie Paull
Lead Engineer: Andrew Chase

As this project enters its second year, it is on track to develop the visualization and statistical tools, binning algorithms, and connections to additional data sources (navigation, bathymetry, etc.) to facilitate science use of the Video Annotation and Reference System data for benthic applications. Some problems with quality control have been discovered and fixed. The data are now easier to visualize, and ready for binning.
