Google Streetview of the Sea
There's apparently a new project by a joint venture between Google, University of Queensland (yay Aussies!) and Caitlin Group to take 360 degree underwater shots, a la Google Streetview.

http://www.petapixel.com/2012/02/24/seav...r-the-sea/

They will use a "specially designed underwater camera to capture interactive 360-degree panoramic photographs. The purpose will be to carry out one of the most intensive studies of reefs ever, starting with Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. It’ll go into full swing starting in September".

You can see a demo here - very cool!

utterly fantastic--so much information in one photo. As photography though I wouldn't bother. This is an information-gathering tool. A photograph, in the artistic use of the medium, has a point of view. Cropping and perspective control are part of what a good photograph.

Looks great...I can sit in my living room these days and see things that I never would have thought I'd ever be able to see without shelling out a lot of $$$. Keep up the good work I say, I've heard Google will be visiting a lot of popular venues/landmarks/buildings and doing a streetview type thing in each. I can't wait.
