Ireland Wreck Viewer (May ’18)

The Irish National Monuments Service have published a new wreck viewer that shows the location and information on 18,000+ known and likely wrecks on the Irish coast & inland waterways through visualization of the content in the Wreck Inventory of Ireland Database (WIID).

The visuals offered by this service highlights the density of wrecks on the south east & northern coasts and provides easy navigation to isolate particular areas/wrecks of interest. The service will continue to be developed and enhanced as more information comes to light
