Summary

This paper focuses on the active use of a diversity of visualization tools that are currently being created and used by underwater explorers and archaeologists in Cenotes or karstic sinkholes in the Yucatan Peninsula. These new tools range from simple and economic ROVs to cameras capable of creating spherical gigapixel images and video. Our goal is to share these experiences with others in the community so that future methods and technologies for capturing data can be the result of collaborative efforts.
