Google hasn't released a mobile Maps app for iOS devices yet, and it might be because it's busy mapping the ocean. Yesterday, the Google Maps team announced it was going where no map has gone before: deep sea diving. Six of the ocean's living coral reefs are now available in Street View, thanks to a partnership with The Catlin Seaview Survey. The incredible underwater images are part of the Street View Collection, which features 360-degree panoramic tours of exotic locales like the icy tundras of Antarctica and the rich wildlife of the Amazon River. So, put down that coffee, get the cursor moving, and take a quick trip around the world with five of our favorite Street Views.
