In order to analyze more in detail Giglio Area and Costa Concordia capsizing, we have decided to locate Costa Concordia with a real size scalable icon.
As you can see below, the Costa Concordia ship is too big to navigate in such a narrow place.
Even if we’re still not certain about the exact point of impact at the moment, it’s likely that it was close to Isole le Scole:
Here is a 2D display of the most probable impact zone. In 2D mode, we understand that this place is definitely made of shallow and rocky waters:
3D mode brings added value to the chart information. It allows us to easily display and understand the prompt depth change. Let’s see the ship again in 3D:
And now, the depth of the potential impact area:
Combined, 2D and 3D display modes give a better, more accurate and safer way to plan a route and avoid dangerous spots.
