The Topographical Mapping System creates maps of waste topography and tank structures to 1) determine surface features and deviations and 2) model the tank environment.

|Document Title:||Topographical Mapping System|
|Date of Image/Photo:||June 1994|
|Background:||The Topographical Mapping System can be used to determine residual tank waste volume. This system was demonstrated in-tank at Oak Ridge Reservation, summer 1997. This system is faster and more accurate than other characterization methods. This technology was developed through a collaboration between Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Mechanical Technologies Inc. under the auspices of the U.S. Department of Energy's Tanks Focus Area and Robotics Crosscutting Program.|
