ing of survey areas. Image processing tools provide some useful solutions. A basic example is the image mosaic where the geocoded view leads to a better sonar image interpreta-tion. This paper illustrates the use of processing techniques originating in the image processing field for three different sonar.

Usually, underwater objects are detected by side-scan sonar [1],[6].Side scan sonar devices are works on the principle of transmitting the sound waves that vibrate at frequency Khz to 1Mhz through the sea floor and receives the echo’s from the objects and maps into the rainbow-colored images or 3D maps based on the Computer mapping software.

Side-scan sonar is a modern method of underwater imaging that can produce remarkably detailed and realistic views of shipwrecks and other bottom features using sound rather than light.
