Model Information

Software Used Agisoft Metashape Professional Version 1.8.0 Build 13794
Data Format .jpg converted from RAW
Number of Source Images used – 2,092
Are these images original or adjusted; Adjusted
Portion of the site covered: 95% The model is missing the masts and the stern was assembled as best could be done since the inside and outside images of the wreck were not adequately overlapped to allow perfect alignment. Alignment on posts and structures with thin edges is often difficult.
