This week, the groundbreaking mapping software Google Earth has been updated with features which now describe the other 71% of the planet’s surface area. The update is being dubbed Google Ocean and it includes much more detailed bathymetry, geotags of popular production by NatGeo and the BBC as well as a host of other location based info-markers. We were able to take a dive into the Marianas Trench and other subsurface features but the level of detail you’ll find is likely to be highly variable due to the patchwork availability of subsurface features. The avid diver will especially appreciate all the popular dive site markers, we are wish listing them now. Hopefully we can look forward to some intrepid coder merging G-Ocean with a Photosynth of the great barrier reef for real time reef exploration. We won’t hold our breath.
