Google Earth goes under water in Australia

February 23, 2012

An ambitious endeavour that will see more than 50,000 high resolution photographs digitally stitched together, will allow Google Earth users to take a virtual dive 100 meters under the ocean’s surface around the Great Barrier Reef.

After successfully mastering street-level photography in almost all corners of the world, Google Earth is now busy documenting the planet’s landmass underwater.

Users will soon be able to take a swim through the World Heritage Site, Great Barrier Reef in Australia, in the comfort of their own home through the internet.

Thousands of 360-degree underwater panoramas will be collected over the next several months with the sub-aquatic version of the equipment used for Google Street View.
