Another activity of the Dutch group was starting to measure the dimensions of the wreck. The divers have developed a computer program to eliminate measuring errors by combining information from a number of triangular measurements. They started at the bow part by setting up some base points. One of these base points is visible in the next picture.

The work is not completed and they transferred their program and knowledge how to use it to Stimana, so that we can continue this effort. It will allow us to detect changes in the structure of the ship over time and it will provide us with an accurate drawing of the wreck.

All in all a lot was accomplished in this period. The activities will be continued by the Stimana volunteers in the weekends.
