Google takes its mapping service underwater, view the Great Barrier Reef from home

While that other mapping service might not be able to show you were a hospital is, Google has been pushing their mapping service, Google Maps, to make it more in-depth. This time they’ve taken that literally; going to the depths of some of the coolest oceans and reefs in the world.

There are 12 underwater areas that you can peruse on your Android device using Google Maps. They include Heron Island, Lady Elliot Island, Molokini Crater, Hanauma Bay, Apo Islands, and Wilson Island.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to find Nemo. Enjoy!
