Just stumbled onto this and thought this might be of wider interest to the forum.
It's an interactive map plotting warships that were sunk during WW2 by their location and with information on each ship if you click on the flag. It's a very interesting piece of work and hopefully of some use in historical research too.

Interessting map.
Allthough I'm quite sure U-86 was not sunk south-west of Harsefeld in Lower Saxony.
And U-515 can be found twice north-west of Madeira.

Awesome. Very cool to see all the ships I've read about shown in their real world locations... seems the whole "underwater archaeology" thing is really taking off with the R/V Petrel finds.
