The wreck of the RMS ‘Titanic’ to be imaged in 3D – video

We have good news for all fans of the wreck of the legendary transatlantic liner RMS “Titanic”! Thanks to the efforts of several organisations, the remains of the liner, discovered in 1985, will be digitised and immortalised in 3D technology. This is a very important step to preserve the heritage of the “Titanic“, which is in an increasingly deteriorated condition.

RMS Titanic Inc, an affiliate of Experiential Media Group, along with the Advanced Imaging and Visualization Lab (AIVL) at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and Marine Imaging Technologies, aim to join forces so that the memory of history’s most famous shipwreck can be preserved for future generations.

There will also be a new science centre – RMS Titanic Survey Data Scientific Study Centerwhich will focus on newly developed research methodologies, including 3D digitisation of underwater objects. The actors will collaborate with maritime heritage archaeologists to develop and implement management strategies to preserve the wreck and create documentaries, VR materials, simulations and museum exhibitions.

As part of the new centre, AIVL and Marine Imaging Technologies are collaborating to create a high-resolution interactive 3D model (to near millimetre scale!) of the bow, stern and other features of the ‘Titanic’. To date, AIVL has compiled and processed data acquired during expeditions to the wreck of the RMS “Titanic” undertaken in 1985, 1986, 1991, 2005 and 2010. This information helps to better understand the structural and environmental changes to the wreck since its sinking.

AIVL and Marine Imaging Technologies have already created the first 2D and 3D, UDHDTV (4K) and 8K (IMAX) videos for future 2D, 3D, widescreen and Virtual Reality productions. The materials are expected to be made available to the public in the near future.

The interactive 3D models created will also be used by archaeologists to accurately monitor changes to the wreck and provide data for its long-term management.

The wreck of the RMS “Titanic” lies at a depth of 3,802 metres, about 370 Mm southeast of the Newfoundland coast.
