Geraud, in this book, brings a new dimension in hydrography and inspection of subsea infrastructures. He stands out from the abundant literature in these fields, on the one hand, by proposing both a comprehensive theoretical and pratical/operational approach and, on the other hand, by federating methods, protocols and tools in order to provide order givers and members of hydrographic and topographic communities, some basics that can help them to better manage or conduct operations of hydrographic surveys and subsea infrastructure inspection from the bid response process to data analysis. In this sense, this book constitues an essential reference to better immerse oneself in the fields of hydrography and subsea infrastructure inspection, as it is the only book that deals particularly with many important aspects related to these two subjects.
