Note(s): This paper presents a novel, automated approach to tracking and mapping recorded underwater bioluminescent organisms based on their display patterns. In this approach, a computational technique, known as snakes, assists in image segmentation, labeling, tracking and mapping. The results can be used to help researchers identify luminous events and organism species, and extract features such as duration, size, and coordinates of the point of impact from the collected video data.
