Holy guacamole! It appears that Safari does not have WebGL enabled. To fix this:
   1) In Safari, open the Safari menu and select Preferences.
   2) Then, click the Advanced tab in the Preferences window.
   3) Then, at the bottom of the window, check the Show Develop menu in menu bar checkbox.
   4) Finally, open the Develop menu in the menu bar and select Enable WebGL.
Have fun!
Holy guacamole! Unfortunately Internet Explorer does not support WebGL. To view this page correctly either:
   1) Use a browser such as Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox,
        or
   2) Install IEWebGL, a 3rd party WebGL renderer for Internet Explore.
Have fun!

Application Overview

A 3D side scan image is generated ping by ping just as images are generated for 2D side scan, however backscatter is also tracked in elevation angle with multiple concurrent arrival angles being tracked simultaneously and independently. The 3D side scan image is called a point cloud and is geometrically correct version of a standard 2D side scan image.

Structures such as shipwrecks, bridge abutments, dam faces, and other underwater objects can be imaged using both standard side scan and 3D side scan output from the 3DSS sonar. The 3D side scan point cloud image can be rotated and manipulated to provide 3D views of object geometry in side scan imaging detail.
