Mosaic of the Ewing Bank Wreck

Mosaic of the Ewing Bank Wreck at 621 meters in the Gulf of Mexico. This three-dimensional perspective of the Ewing Bank Wreck was produced by "draping" the photo mosaic over the multibeam bathymetry. The photos and multibeam data were collected with the C-Surveyor autonomous underwater vehicle.
