Google Maps has this feature called Street View, pictures of the streets, driveways and people taken by a roving vehicle with a camera recording everything. Some are calling it privacy invasion. Now the Google is recording ocean floors.
Starting now users of Google Earth can dive into the ocean, explore marine habitats including Monterey Bay and get the latest information about how to make ocean-friendly seafood choices.
The Monterey Bay Aquarium, the aquarium’s Seafood Watch program and scientists at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) and Stanford University made important contributions to the newest version of Google Earth that was released today by the Mountain View (Calif.) company.
Monterey Bay – including its undersea geography and marine life – is one of 11 regions around the world that are focal areas in the launch of the new Google Earth.
