3D photogrammetry maps of coral reefs

Photographic studies of coral reefs are being stitched together, piece by piece,
using a technology called 3D photogrammetry.
Scientists Stuart Sandin and Jennifer Smith at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in San Diego are mapping 100 coral reefs around the planet.
The effort could help save reefs that are threatened by climate change, and help us learn more about the coral's overall health.
