SeaZone Wrecks Database
Oxfordshire, UK - 9 January 2012 - Do you know that there are thousands of recorded shipwrecks and many are not shown on navigation charts? Navigation charts only contain wrecks which are considered to be a navigational hazard.
Do you need to know the full picture?
SeaZone has the definitive database of UK wrecks information and extensive worldwide coverage. SeaZone wrecks data is captured from multiple sources ensuring you receive the best-available and latest information. As well as detailing wreck location, considerable additional information is available including wreck depth, identification, state, cargo, and circumstance of loss.
SeaZone can provide information relating to wrecks in a specific geographic area or we can make our whole wrecks database available under license. This information is fully available for use in customer GIS systems.
SeaZone wrecks data is used by a diverse range of organisations, including Government departments, research organisations, archaeology consultants and diving groups.
