Google has released a variety of 40 brand new “special street view” imagery included in its most recent update. Google Underwater Street Views lets you discover the world unknown to many.
Along with typical pictures, the new landscapes allow you to swim with whales near the waters in the Cook Islands, scuba dive off the coastline of Bali and have a seaside stroll in Samoa.
Google’s Street View crew produced the new images together with the Catlin Seaview Survey, the Chagos Conversation Trust and the Office of National Marine Sanctuaries.
The venture belongs to Google Earth Outreach which started producing underwater landscapes in 2012, together with Catlin, to be able to examine the situations of a couple of Earth’s most isolated and spectacular environments.
On Google’s post, the firm states: “Mapping the ocean is key to preserving it .
Every single picture in Google Maps is a GPS-located electronic file of these marine and seaside areas, that can be used as a baseline to keep track of change as time passes.
This extensive file of coral reefs displays the appeal of these areas and emphasizes the risks they deal with, like the effect of expanding storms in the Great Barrier Reef and of growing water temperatures, elements leading to the reefs to bleach white.
“As the ocean changes, we must change with it by creating new technologies, to help document the state of the ocean today and how it changes in years to come,” the statement added.
