As you now some of the Autodesk Products have the ability to use Google Earth Data. 
Today is the day where google earth  reaches the next level in digital geography.

With the new version of Google Earth 5.0 the development team integrated the Google Ocean component. If you zoom close enough you will see the water-level in a translucent representation. Actually you really can dive into the water and you will see the seabed in 3D and you can navigate trough the ocean.

During your virtual dive you can see material provided by different organisations like National Geographic and BBC Earth.

In the moment 20 Level are available, here a selection of some very interesting things:

  • Investigate the ocean
    You can see Pictures and videos about Sights under water.
  • Marine Protected Areas
    Information on endangered and protected areas like the Great Barrier Reef

  • Animal tracking
    The migration routes of marine animals, tracked and recorded with satellite transmitters

  • Seafood Watch
    Information on the harmful effects of overfishing.

  • Cousteaus World of the Sea
    Great videos from the archives of the famous ocean explorer Jacques Cousteau, including previously unpublished material.

  • Water sports
    The best spots for sailors, divers and surfers.

  • Shipwrecks
    The remains of ships and ship known cemeteries on the seabed.
     

Enjoy virtual diving! 🙂
