Mapping Shipwrecks

Wreck is a website with a specific interest in shipwrecks in the English Channel and the North Sea. They have put together an interactive mapping application that plots the locations of shipwrecks against scanned nautical charts. The points representing the shipwrecks are queryable and provide information on the ship such as type, size, and date and circumstance of its sinking. Where available it also includes photos of the fated ship. Users can also query by geographic location. The application does not seem to work in Firefox; better to use IE. The application is nicely put together but clicking on a point to draw up information is sometimes problematic.
