Post-processed Teledyne BlueView scanning multibeam sonar dataset collected at Site 41OR90 (January 2020)

Part of the 41OR90 Underwater Monitoring project

Creator(s): Mason Miller; Joseph Grinnan; Sara M. Parkin

Analyst(s): Bryan Herling

Year: 2020


Processed and merged point clouds from BlueView multibeam scanning sonar deployed around the perimeter of World War I shipwreck 41OR90. The dataset includes three vantages around the wreck that were accessible and produced viable data, including: 1) the full length of the ship's starboard, 2) the port bow, and 3) the port side abaft the midships section.
