Titanic Shipwreck recreated in detailed 3D visualisation
The first full-sized digital scan of the Titanic, provides a unique 3D view of the entire ship, revealing the remains as they lay submerged at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean with a level of detail that has never been captured before.
An ambitious digital imaging project has produced what researchers describe as a “digital twin” of the R.M.S. Titanic, showing the wreckage of the doomed ocean liner as if the water has been drained away.
The model was created with data using deep-sea mapping gathered by two submersibles – named Romeo and Juliet – during a six-week expedition to the North Atlantic wreck site in summer 2022, to map “every millimetre” of the wreckage as well as the entire three-mile debris field.
The project, undertaken by Magellan Ltd., a deepwater seabed mapping company, yielded more than 16 terabytes of data, 715,000 still images and a high-resolution video.
Whilst parts of the ship — including the vast bow section — are immediately recognisable, other regions of the ship near the stern have yielded to over a century of decay, appearing now as little more than tangled piles of metallic debris.
