Thousand Islands 3D Shipwrecks

The St. Lawrence River Historical Foundation (SRHF) has started a program to create a database of 3D models of Thousand Islands shipwrecks that can be viewed by the public and made available to interested parties in the region.

We have joined and are working with 3D  as part of their
project to provide 3D models of every shipwreck in the Great Lakes.
Our plan is to launch a new website for Thousand Islands 3D Shipwrecks
by the end of the dive season.  We will work with the local dive clubs,
divers, and shops and get videos to produce 3D models.  Anyone who has
a video of a wreck site that we can extract a 3D image from, we will
process it for free and give back the files for a 3D model.  The only
provision is that we get to post it on 3D and our own sites
with appropriate credits.  The videos should be filmed for use in
photogrammetry but sometimes they can be repurposed.

Using older repurposed videos, it looks like we have acceptable models
for about 50% of the US wrecks in the Thousand Islands off Jefferson
County. They can be seen on the individual shipwreck pages on this website.
