Advances in digital image processing of the (GLORIA) Geological Long-Range Induced Asdic) sidescan-sonar image data have made it technically and economically possible to map large areas of the ocean floor including the Exclusive Economic Zone. Software was written to correct both geometric and radiometric distortions that exist in the original raw GLORIA data. A digital mosaicking technique was developed enabling 2 degree by 2 degree quadrangles to be generated.
