ABSTRACT
Recreational diving in inland waters is one of the fastest growing tourism sectors globally. Every year many people dive both on shallow and deep water.
All underwater activities carried out by the diver require good planning and safe methodology. The traditional approach is inherently inefficient. Due to the time limitations of the diving and logistical cost of delivering the supporting diving team especially for extremely deep diving requires safety procedures and optimal tools for 3D path planning.
The study presents a proposition of using GIS tools for improving underwater path planning and operational technique optimization. Our technology provides tools and algorithms for creating optimal 3D paths for underwater diving in a deep (60 m or more) reservoir. The research was implemented on Lake Hańcza, the deepest Polish lake (about 105.5 m). The first test was conducted during the diving along the lake at a depth of 60 m. The results show that the proposed methodology can generate useful paths for 3D navigation even along a deep lake.

Keywords: path planning, underwater studies, deep diving, GIS, GNSS
