Description 
Summary

The INtegrated Mapping FOr the Sustainable Development of Ireland's MArine Resource (INFOMAR) programme is a joint venture between the Geological Survey of Ireland (GSI) and the Marine Institute (MI). The programme is the successor to the Irish National Seabed Survey (INSS) and concentrates on creating integrated mapping products related to the seabed. Shipwreck refers both to the remains of a ship that has wrecked, which are found either beached (on land) or sunken (at the bottom of a body of water), and to the action that causes a shipwreck, which may be purposeful or accidental. INFOMAR surveyed shipwrecks are the locations of where the remains of a ship have been surveyed by vessel instrumentation.
