Digital Age Shipwreck Searchers Uncovered at Ozri 2013

Thousands of unlocated shipwrecks lie entombed along the nation’s coast: victims of raging gales, careless captains and, in some cases, foul play.

ShipShapeSearchers archaeologist Alex Moss and his team have been working to uncover these long-forgotten hulks by using Geographic Information System (GIS) technology to create digital 3D reconstructions of the ocean floor.

Mr Moss said researchers use the technology to ‘fly’ in and out of the virtual model and peel back each of the element layers to ‘bring out’ the wrecks beneath.

“The technology also helps archaeologists determine the types of materials the ships are made of, as well as their condition and age, making it easier to identify the wreck itself,” Mr Moss said.

Mr Moss will be available for interviews and image opportunities following his presentation.

Ozri 2013 will run from 4-6 September at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre. The event is hosted by Esri Australia, the market leader in Australia’s $2.1 billion mapping technology industry.

Complimentary media passes are available by downloading and emailing the online media pass application or contacting Alicia Kouparitsas using the details below.
