Google Street View to Map the Barrier Reef • Mirror Daily

They say that we know more about the outer space than about the oceans of our planet. The water on Earth is such a mysterious ecosystem and it represents one of the most interesting subjects of research for biologists, geographers and, more recently, environmentalists. It has been 4 years since the Mountain View, CA based tech giant Google Inc has started to go into the deep in order to provide a well established map of the world beneath the sea level. Now, the most recent info in connection to this matter claims Google Street View to map the Barrier Reef.

Everyone who has shown interest to the problem of developing a map of the oceans is excited about this news, as the Great Barrier Reef of Australia is one of the most exquisite places on Earth. So being able to explore the underwater worlds of the Coral Sea is a great opportunity for everybody who has a link to this matter and not only, representing a point of interest to anybody who is curious about it as well.

The Street View service by Google Inc has already earned a reputation of catching the most unexpected moments on camera. The people responsible for this service offered by the Mountain View, CA based tech giant have photographed scenes that are unique throughout the entire globe. However, when the Google Inc camera has gotten to the Coral Sea in order to map the Barrier Reef, the images have shown a peaceful world, an ecosystem that runs in harmony and still untouched by the viruses that men spread over the planet.

And it is not that Google Inc offers you photographs of the underwater habitat at the Great Barrier Reef. That would still be fascinating, but it would not represent an innovation. What Google Inc brings new to the table with the Street View service heading to the Coral Sea is a 360 degree visualization of the Barrier Reef.

There are 20 different angles from which you can observe the beauty of the quiet underwater life.

The tech giant Google Inc has mentioned that it has completed the project in order to mark the World Oceans Day, which is celebrated on June 8 on an yearly basis.

The Great Barrier Reef is not the only place where Google Street View has arrived. The experts at Google Inc have also captured the ecosystems in Bali, the Maldives, the Bahamas and also at the spot of an Indonesian shipwreck.
