By using specially designed underwater panoramic camera, the Google’s project aims to collect 50,000 images with 360-degree imagery.

These images will allow people to go along the Great Barrier Reef and have a virtual dive in Google Maps.

Google explains:

“With these vibrant and stunning photos you don’t have to be a scuba diver—or even know how to swim—to explore and experience six of the ocean’s most incredible living coral reefs. Now, anyone can become the next virtual Jacques Cousteau and dive with sea turtles, fish and manta rays in Australia, the Philippines and Hawaii.”
