Google Sea View

The Google Maps Street View Collections are pretty cool (and just plain pretty!) and well worth an explore whenever you have a few moments to kill. (Armchair tourism at its best.) The new Ocean Collection is particularly impressive because you can wander around underwater! As reported in the Guardian Science Section "Google Maps' virtual diving brings the Great Barrier Reef into view":
Millions of people will be able to take a virtual dive on the Great Barrier Reef via Google Maps on Wednesday as part of a pioneering underwater scientific expedition.

The Catlin Seaview Survey will allow internet users to share the discoveries of scientists who are using new technology to study the composition and health of the Great Barrier Reef.
I like!
