Torpedo boat wreck (Mediterranean, 43.124N;6.523E): Imagery and 3D model


Torpedo boat wreck off-the southern French Mediterranean coast (43.124°N;6.523°E), at a water depth of ~476 m. This battle ship sank in 1903 ( and the wreck is is ~20 m long and 3 m wide, raising ~2 m above the surrounding seafloor. This shipwreck was surveyed using the HROV Arianne in 2016, deployed from N/O L’Europe, and equipped with a vertical electronic still camera. Two datasets are provided. First, the survey imagery, that consists of 442 images (jpeg format) and an associated navigation file in dim2 format (torpdo_boat_imagery). Second, a 3D textured model of the site (obj format), together with the a kml file for georeferencing, and a geotiff orthomosaic (torpedo_boat_model). This dataset is one of several sets released with a paper by Arnaubec et al. (submitted to Computer and Geosciences) presenting the Matisse image processing software, and the 3DMetrics Visualization and analysis software (ref Github to come).
