Google has been working on the idea of creating virtual maps for underwater world since 2012. Since then, Google has been working very hard on this project. It is well appreciated. A couple of days ago, Google has updated new locations to its image collection of ocean Street View. These are around Monaco, Cancun and Isla Mujeres, take a look from the link maps.google.com/ocean.
Google has partnered with the Catalin Seaview Survey to run this project smoothly and to use number of cameras for capturing the panoramic view of underwater world.Google has put the efforts of divers in plain words and presented that usually divers cover about 2 kilometers to take as much as 3000 to 4000 images per dive. And each of the dives takes almost an hour, the team follow schedule of three dives a day.
According to last year’s I/O developer conference, Google has declared that the major focus firstly will be on the oceans of and around America. However, there is a big plan to cover world’s oceans and to bring all of them to Google Street View in couple of years. Another addition is the shoreline of San Francisco. In last summer, this collection has six locations, including reefs around Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, the Hawaii and Philippines. With a slow expansion, Street View from Google is now featuring locations like coast of Bermuda and Galapagos Islands.
