Costa Concordia AIS Position Reports Graphic
The graphic depicts the cruise ship's path before and after the grounding. The ship's position reports explain why the ship's damage is on the port (Left) side yet the rocky coast is on the starboard (Right) side. After the Concordia struck the coast on the port side the ship continued, then made a 180 degree turn to starboard in an attempt to enter the nearly port, before the ship began to list dramatically.
