Hope all of you know about Google Maps, the very famous venture by Google which enables easy navigation and geographical data of the whole world under one roof. From the era of affordable Smartphone along with GPS support, Google Maps has now became very much familiar for people and they’re using this service for their everyday life needs and not for just a time pass. What to say, Google Maps is now a great thing now. Interestingly, the Tech Giant had included 3D Maps, and much more features over these two years.
All these additions have helped Google Maps to be a much reliable and easy to use source of an area’s or the whole world’s geographical data. As you may’ve heard, Google Maps and iOS 6 are being top discussed topics at this movement as Apple replaced Google Maps with their own Navigation system called Apple Maps. Since it had reported a bunch of bugs and major problems, we’ll have to say that Apple has got wrong. By the way, we are not here to talk about the quarrel.
The Giant Tech firm, Google has introduced a very cool feature today which allows a underwater imagery experience to Google Maps. So each and every Google Search Engine user can dive virtually into Great Barrier Reef, the Philippines and Hawaii. Through this new feature, Google has shown how to use internet to give users an awesome chance to enjoy the beauty of great places in our earth including these underwater stuff.
As you can expect, this service is still under partial development and some limited locations are only supported for using this feature. Still you can dive to the following places via the corresponding links.
- Sea turtle swimming among a school of fish (Barrier Reef)
- Mantra Ray (Barrier Reef)
- Reef at Sunset (Barrier Reef)
- Boulder Coral with an age of 100 Years (Apo Island, A Volcanic Island in Philippines)
- Snoorkelers in Oahu’s Hanauma Bay (Hawaii)
- Coral Reef at Maui’s Molokini crater
Partnering with The Catlin Seaview Survey, Google have made a nice approach to the photographical skills underwater and hence to bring an entirely different sea view experience through the service. The company has used a specially designed camera named SVII for capturing the beauty of underwater. As you can see the image of one Google Worker who is trying to capture a Manta ray from Great Barrier Reef.
So, still you want to wait? I don’t think so. Anyhow this is a great footstep and showing how to engage the features of Internet in everyday entertainment. So stop waiting and follow the below link to get the awesome gallery of Deep Ocean
