Walk the Ocean Floor with Google Maps Street View

In a project sponsored by Google and Catlin Seaview Survey, Google Maps now offers “Street View” of the Ocean Floor. A majority of the images have been collected off the coast of Australia and the Caribbean. Scientists in America will be exploring fish-eye under water photography this week in the Florida Keys. 

You can read more about the project via the Associated Press or this summary by Scientific American. You can peruse the collection of underwater Street View images (with more coming) here.
