Niku VIII Search Reference Kit
« on: March 04, 2013, 07:34:18 PM »

As we discuss, plan, and conduct the Niku VIII expedition, we’ll be referencing various parts of Nikumaroro and the surrounding waters. The Niku VIII Search Reference Kit is designed to help everyone follow and contribute to the coming discussions and reports. The Kit includes:

•  A printed full-color 11x17 inch Grid Map of Nikumaroro based on a spectacular cloud-free July 18, 2012 half-meter resolution image by the GeoEye1 satellite.
The Grid Map includes:
- an alpha/numeric grid that divides the island and underwater search area into 140 meter (450 foot) blocks
- annotated points of special interest with latitude and longitude
- a detailed inset Grid Map of the Seven Site

• A Compact Disc (CD) featuring:
- a JPEG version of the Grid Map – zoomable, good resolution
- a PDF version of the Grid Map – zoomable, maximum resolution
- ten JPEG zoomable sonar maps of the underwater topography at Nikumaroro.
- All of the files on the CD can be downloaded for research, slideshow, screen saver, wallpaper, etc.

To illustrate the level of detail in the new Grid Map, here's the Norwich City wreckage as it appears on Google Earth and the same area in the PDF version in the Kit.
