The ICARAD Program

(Interactive Chart plotting and Artifact Recording and Documenting)

Bill Moore In 1995 started creating a system to plot in the most professional and precise manner all the

 recovered artifacts from the 1715 Plate Fleet. In 1996 he petitioned to the State of Florida to move from the current system using beach markers and angle coordinates to utilizing WAAS enabled GPS. In 1998 he created the ICARAD Program for the recording and plotting procedures that are currently used by The Florida East Coast Shipwreck Project.

The ICARAD Program utilizes several computer programs in a new and unique symbiotic format to create a very precise and professional system in which to record, plot and document submerged cultural resources. The programs utilized in system include AutoCAD, Access, Excel, Word and Corpscon. Corpscon was developed by the Army Corp of Engineers and is utilized in the conversion from state planes or UTM coordinates to Lat and Long coordinates and also takes into account the datum points used for NAD 27, WGS 84, etc.

The ICARAD Program allows us to precisely plot, record and document the location and recovery of

submerged cultural resources and the information is recorded in a format that allows the information to be utilized in an interactive format. Following is a sample from one of our current projects utilizing the ICARAD system for work we are doing with Florida East Coast Shipwreck Project which is one of the first and currently most successful joint ventures between the private sector, government archaeologist and local historical societies. The first exhibit displays a section of the research and recovery area where the entire area and bottom topography is documented and coordinated with the most current WAAS enabled GPS System (Exhibit A).

The second Exhibit displays the same research and recovery area but now every item recovered or located is plotted, recorded and documented (Exhibit B).

For further information any person utilizing the ICARAD system can simply click on the area showing the recovery or location of an artifact and the ICARAD system then displays the archaeological data record card of the artifact which displays the photos of the artifact front, reverse and side along with all the weights and measurements of the artifact utilizing the metric system (Exhibit C).

For further interactive information the ICARAD system also has the ability to display the recovered or located artifact in real time interactive 3D format which allows the researcher to manipulate the image of the artifact by turning, rotating or zooming in for in depth review of the artifact

through the ICARAD system. This is done through special photography of the artifact and state of the art computer programming.

To demonstrate this feature we would need to utilize one of our computers with the program already loaded into the operating system of the computer. We would be glad to present this feature and all other features in an actual presentation of our system.
