The Catlin Seaview Survey has teamed up with the Sydney Institute of Marine Science, where this combined effort will record and reveal the rich abundance of marine life that reside along Sydney’s famous Harbour and coastline, all the way from Manly to Bronte. This particular project would make use of Catlin Seaview Survey’s 360-degree panoramic SVII camera in order to gather the imagery, where the compiled images will then be published to Google Maps later this year.
