Wrecks Mapping Project | WMP
Interested in starting your own Wrecks Mapping Project?
For centuries divers have been attracted to wrecks for various reasons. There is the history of the actual wreck and the unravelling of that history when you see it. Then there is the fact that wrecks become underwater reefs and are home to many species of marine life, flora and fauna. Some people just dive them out of pure curiosity with no specific reason.
Whatever your aim a wreck becomes more interesting if she is mapped. How much better is it to know most of the ins and outs of the structure, the hidden secrets and how the wreck lies, before you dive?
If you want to you can focus your dive on a specific part of the wreck. You may wish to get to a certain point of the wreck to explore, photograph or film it or the marine life.
When a wreck has been mapped you can go straight to your chosen point without wasting bottom time and air. Wrecks are usually multi-level, so you can pick a depth to suit your qualification or air consumption. Knowing the depths enables you to formulate a good dive profile before you enter the water. A good pre-dive briefing will also ensure you are aware of visibility, expected currents and temperature.
Whatever your reason for wreck diving the mapping of it will enhance any dive.
