First it was roads, now Google are mapping reefs.
Photos of six stunning underwater locations have just been released, among them Australia’s Great Barrier Reef and the Apo Islands.
Divers with the Caitlin Sea Survey are using special cameras to take about 50,000 images as they swim around the Barrier Reef.
The pictures will be combined into high-resolution panoramic scenes, allowing website visitors to go on a virtual dive.
They will also provide invaluable information about the state of health of the reef.
