In the beginning of April 2014, the first workshop on marine imaging was held at the National Oceanographic Centre in Southampton. The aim was to bring together people from various disciplines that use or plan to use optical image based analysis of the oceans. Topics included: image acquisition, image processing, annotation of stills and video, automated image analysis, access and management of big image data.

The 2014 Marine Imaging Workshop was sponsored by:


Durden, Jennifer M., et al. "Perspectives in visual imaging for marine biology and ecology: from acquisition to understanding." Oceanography and Marine Biology. CRC Press, 2016. 9-80.
