Mapping History

Teams conduct 3D survey of USS Arizona and USS Utah

A mere few feet below the tranquil waters off Pearl Harbor's Ford Island, sit the silent remnants of one of the most devastating days in our history.

Although the events of December 7, 1941 will never be forgotten, nature and time are inevitably reclaiming all physical aspects of the once mighty USS Arizona and USS Utah.

With cutting edge technology in underwater mapping and survey, teams are now able to digitally preserve, down to the most minute detail, these quickly fading relics of our "day of infamy."
