Title: Wreck and Obstruction Data for the Pacific Ocean, Atlantic Ocean, and North America Coastlines
Description:
Abstract:
The Automated Wreck and Obstruction Information System (AWOIS) is an automated file that contains information on wrecks and obstructions in areas subject to NOS hydrographic surveys. The file contains information on approximately 10,000 submerged wrecks and obstructions in the coastal waters of the United States. Items in this file are individually catalogued and are accompanied by historic and descriptive information gathered from field observations and Government and private publications. All items have a position in latitude and longitude, a position accuracy code, a charted symbol code, and a chart number. Each item has also been evaluated for the adequacy of the available information as it relates to future survey and nautical charting activities and may carry a specific recommendation for the type of survey investigation required to improve the quality of known information.
