Google Maps gets its first underwater Street View locations
This is a perfect time for Google to release new Maps features, as Apple Maps is currently working overtime to promote the use of the competitors. Google isn’t letting the chance pass, and has announced the first underwater Street View locations. By partnering up with the Catlin Seaview Survery, Google has now started offering images of some of the world’s most remarkable reefs, taken by diving teams equipped with a special camera.
Google is offering up a few examples for you to check out directly, as well as the promotional video above. While you’re likely not going to use this to find an address (unless you’re Spongebob Squarepants), the it’s a great way to check out some breathtaking places. Then again, Apple might actually have a use for this, as it could help it discover that train stations aren’t in the ocean.[Google]
