This document specifies the practical procedure to obtain good images for geometric camera calibration at GEOMAR. Geometric camera calibration means that for each pixel in the image the associated 3D ray in space is known with respect to the camera. This is useful for measuring with cameras, i.e. to reason about sizes, distances, angles, volumes, surfaces in 2D and 3D and to track the motion of a camera through space. This document is the first SOP for calibration and refers to the intrinsic, geometric calibration of a single camera with at port interface that is submerged underwater, in particular how to capture the calibration data. Photometric calibration (intensities, colours) of camera, light and water properties is out of scope of this document and also geometric calibration of dome ports, stereo systems, camera-laser calibration or so called handy-eye calibration of a camera and a platform (e.g. ROV) or other sensors, has to be specified in further documents. Still,.....
