Over the past 6 days Simon has been navigating every inch of the Thistlegorm wreck. Spending a total of 806 minutes (13hrs 43mins) capturing over 24,307 high resolution images, amounting to 637Gb. After completing the final dive this data is now ready to be processed into digital 3D models through photogrammetry techniques.
In addition to the images, physical measurements of the wreck and key point GPS data were gathered. This enabling the model to be built with location & orientation understood, and the subsequent 3D model to be measured with confidence.
The models will be published to coincide with the 76th anniversary of the sinking of the ship on the 6th October 2017.
