|Virtual Dive Site UB88: Yes or Not ?|
Posted by eDiver on July 18, 2010 at 17:38:17:|
As You might know (or not) we have already created virtual dive sites for several wrecks (Yukon, Olympic II, C-53, Spiegel Grove, Prins Willem V, Duane, Bibb and the mighty Oriskany) and I am very tempted to do the same for the UB88 :-) ....
Assuming that I get my hands on the "right" bathymetry dataset (happened before :-)) and assuming I get the coordinates of the UB88 (or maybe I have those already ?) should we spend time and money to create a 3D model of the UB88, create a 3D model of the terrain, put the 3D UB88 in the virtual site and then put everything online so everyone could virtually dive it ?
Yes ? No ? Maybe ?
Or, should we create a "fake site" with the UB88 positioned at the right depth (not a secret anymore) but in the wrong location ?
Or should we just leave the UB88 alone for the joy of the few ?
Personally, I am not planning to dive the UB88 for real (too deep for me ... after my motorcycle accident I was told to be careful with my broken bones :-( ) but I would really like to dive it at least virtually.
So, what do You think ?
