Google Maps goes underwater: Street View technology now lets users tour oceans
Google dipped below sea level on Tuesday, rolling out new interactive underwater maps that allow users to explore coral reefs around the world while staying on dry land.
Users can now take a virtual tour of the ocean, exploring the coral reefs of six oceans, including Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, Apo Island in the Philippines, and Hawaii’s Hanauma Bay in the Pacific Ocean.
The underwater panoramas can be navigated just like roads, as users can zoom in and out and toggle right, left, up and down using the Street View arrows to “look” around a location.
