Summary

In 2015, the Indiana Lake Michigan Coastal Management Program expanded efforts to connect the public with historical archaeology and better manage submerged cultural resources. For the first time in the Great Lakes region, a mobile sonar survey was conducted in combination with a diver-directed sonar survey to collect three-dimensional data for four shipwrecks. The resulting compilation of remote sensing technology and 3D animated web modeling provides new information about previously unrecognized site limits, site conditions and an avenue for the public to visit places such as these shipwrecks that they would not have an opportunity to see otherwise.
