This thesis has reviewed how increased depth perception can be used to increase the understanding of hydrographic data First visual cues and various visual displays and techniques were investigated. From this investigation 3D stereoscopic techniques prove to be superior in improving the depth perception and understanding of spatially related data and a further investigation on current 3D stereoscopic visualisation techniques was carried out. After reviewing how hydrographic data is currently visualised it was decided that the chromo stereoscopic visualisation technique is preferred to be used for further research on selected hydrographic data models. A novel chromo stereoscopic application was developed and the results from the evaluation on selected hydrographic data models clearly show an improved depth perception and understanding of the data models.
