Editors note: This post is the first in a series of guest entries by members of the XL Catlin Seaview Survey team. A group dedicated to recording and revealing the world’s coral reefs in high-resolution. World Oceans Day 360 degree 360-degree panoramic imagery. These posts will take you behind the scenes of the project and introduce you to the people taking these images. earthtopomaps

the Coral Triangle is a 5.7 million square kilometer area that spans from the Philippines in the north, down to Indonesia and as far as the Solomon Islands in the east.

E)We’ve seen large schools with hundreds of reef fish such as butterfly fish(Chaedotontidae spp).  Every dive begins with getting our divers rigged up and the 60kg. Camera off our research boat Makarena and into the water. The SVII is a revolutionary camera system that creates high-resolution 360-degree. Images of the underwater environment using technology similar to Google Street View. By attaching SVII to an underwater scooter. We can cover distances of up to two kilometers in a single dive.world oceans day 360 degree
