Google Launches Underwater Street View

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Google launches the 3D map of ‘Great Barrier Reef’ that becomes the first in the world. The tech giant teamed up with Australian researchers Catlin Seaview Survey to create database that enables people to take virtual diving into one of the world’s underwater heritage site.

The application will also cover the latest condition of the coral reefs  to compare its state after threats like cyclones or global warming. The images were taken afrom aling the coastline of Queensland using special camera.

"The camera used for the survey is something that was specifically designed for this project," Catlin Seaview Survey executive director Richard Vevers said to ABC Online.

"It allows us to take full 360 [degree] images every three seconds as we're travelling along reef environments."

The images can be acccessed through ‘Google Maps’ to give chance for people everywhere in the world to enjoy the natural wonder of the Great Barrier Reef.

"They can go jump in the water, go on a virtual dive and see how different the reef is along the 2300 kilometres," Mr Vevers said.

Google Spokesman Shane Treeves explained how to access the app.

"All you have to do is drag your peg man and you can swim virtually underwater from your own home to explore 360 degree images of these locations," Shane said.

The Catlin seaview Survey also claimed that the project is important to support the monitoring  and conservation efforts for the coral reefs.
