It is common knowledge that the giant ocean liner Titanic struck an iceberg and sank to the bottom of the Atlantic on the night of April 14-15, 1912. But where exactly did she sink? Could better maps have prevented the disaster? How was the wreck found? Time has raised even more questions. Where is ice most dangerous? What happened to the passengers and crew who survived?
This double-sided, full-color infographic (39" x 26") gives the details and shows:
- Titanic's route; shipping lanes before and after the disaster; the journey of the fateful iceberg; charts and statistics from post-disaster hearings; inset map of ice and rescue ships; deep-ocean diagrams of the search process; Titanic points of interest.
- Color-coded deck plans and cutaway view; passengers' profiles; ship size comparisons; the story in art and culture; plans for the wreck's future.
