Advanced robotic technologies have been used to study shipwrecks and other underwater archaeological sites for 17 years. Robotic  vehicles can map and photomosaic a shipwreck with quantifiable accuracy in the space of a few hours, and enable access to sites  resting on the other 98% of the seafloor.  Click image for larger view and image credit.
