Cave Exploration, Survey and Mapping

GUE’s Underwater Cave Survey Course is designed to introduce experienced cave divers to the important skill of surveying underwater caves. Among the course’s intended outcomes are: introducing divers to the basic principles of underwater cave survey, the implementation of a defined team approach to underwater survey data collection, preparing an experienced cave diver to assist productively in a coordinated cave project, and introducing divers to cartography methods.

GUE’s Documentation Diver course is designed to introduce divers to sound documentation techniques orbiting project-based diving. Other course outcomes include: basic training in photography/videography, the use of related equipment, specific team-skills needed during documentation diving, specific communication requirements, the establishing of clear objectives and work-plans, the management of team tasks, how to create a report, how to map, survey, and prepare material for media publication.
