    Abstract

    Visual inspection is an integral part of Condition and Class surveys, with the results comprising of the surveyors’ opinion, documented by a sum of pictures indicating areas of interest. Although this way provides the most essential information, the communication of the results may be difficult, since isolated images cannot provide the context. Photogrammetry exploits pictorial data to provide 3D models, with a high level of accuracy and is not an uncommon method in the maritime environment. Use of such methods to support visual survey activities is examined in this work, providing the methodology for the data collection, which is structured in an algorithmic way, to enable realization by automated means (robots). The 3D model is provided, along with accuracy results.
