Google Maps unveils new underwater Street View images

PanARMENIAN.Net - The Google Maps team has announced the addition of new underwater Street View images in locations around Mexico with the help of the Catlin Seaview Survey, an organization documenting the world's declining coral reefs via high-resolution, underwater photography, Mashable reported.

Created in September 2012, the 360-degree, panoramic photographs produced by the Catlin Seaview Survey will allow scientists to monitor the health of coral reefs around the world and offer policy makers and the general public a closer look at a critical part of the environment.

The newly added photographs feature locations including Isla Mujeres and Cancun in the southeastern region of Mexico. In Google Maps' announcement, the team posted photographs of a whale shark swimming near Isla Contoy, north of Cancun, and a sunken car hosting sea life that's part of an underwater museum in Isla Mujeres.

The new photographs of Mexico's underwater world join many others around the world as a part of the Street View Oceans section of Google Maps Views. Street View Oceans already showcases coral reefs in Bermuda, the San Francisco shoreline, sea lions playing in the Galapagos sea, turtles swimming in the Great Barrier Reef and many other stunning ocean views.
