Summary:
The rapid increase in the amount of data gathered by Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUV) leads to a global data management issue. Indeed, this large data collection effort is only interesting if the data collected can be easily retrieved and analyzed by many researchers. The main contribution of this thesis is the design of data management and retrieval schemes useful to the whole AUV community that both simplify the access and treatment of the data collected. This is achieved by the use of a self-describing standard data format (Hierarchical Data Format) and the use of Internet browsers' file download ability. Recent developments in Sun's Java applet technology have been used to provide a user-friendly Graphical User Interface (GUI) so that the user can select data files according to a large number of parameters (what variables have been collected, when and where).
