Google Ocean(?)

Google Earth is obviously one of the coolest (and useful) mapping programs on the planet. To this day when I use it I think to myself “Y’know, the Boston Museum of Science said we’d have stuff like this in the future when I was a kid.” And yeah they were right, but I bet even they didn’t think we’d have stuff as good as Google Earth is.

So.. what’s the next step for Google Earth? Land? Check. Sky? Check? Space? Check?

Ocean?

Yes.

And according to what’s being said about this, everyone is crazy-interested in this idea.

Yes, the idea of having a 3D oceanographic map is awesome.

Why?

Because it hasn’t been done before. Not like this, anyway.

  1. I’m really looking forward to Google Ocean….very cool.

  2. It would be cool if they hooked up with NavQuest.com, and did full ocean navigation.
