Google has introduced the sea view to google maps today. This stunning feature allows you to catch all the beauty of the sea just by hitting google maps. In this wonderful initiative, The Catlin Seaview Survey have helped Google to make this wonder happen. Google and Catlin Seaview survey have used special underwater camera SVII. This camera takes Rapid-fire 360 degree images in every 3 sec at the speed of approximately 4Km/h. Because of this project we can get accessibility to oceans through ‘Virtual Driving’ just we get at it on land with Google’s Street View.
The project has been started in Great Barrier Reef, Maui’s Molokini Crater, Hanauma Bay of Ohio, Apo Island of Phillippines and Coral Sea. You can also zoom in oceans just as you doi it in street view. Although, there are limited images available in the gallery but Google has promised more would be available soon. Google has also released a video which shows beauty of oceans. For more details visit maps.google.com/oceans
