Can You Believe it? Google Street View’s New Underwater Images!
Google never ceases to amaze us, in 2012 Google released its first underwater panoramic images to Google Maps. This past Monday Google unveiled its latest improvements to Google Maps in honor of World Oceans Day.
The New Street Views allow people to explore; as well as see how the Ocean may have changed for the better (or worse) over the course of the last year. As Google highlights in its post,
“That Water is covering more than 70 percent of the Earth’s surface, the ocean remains one of the most uncharted and undiscovered ecosystems on the planet. Home to the majority of life on Earth, the ocean acts as its life support system, controlling everything from our weather and rainfall to the oxygen we breathe. Yet despite the ocean’s vital importance, the ocean is changing at a rapid rate due to climate change, pollution, and overfishing, making it one of the most serious environmental issues we face today.”
