    The Catlin Seaview Survey announced (November 14 2014) that a complete visual and data record from its expeditions along the Great Barrier Reef is now available to anyone to use through the Catlin Global Reef Record. More than 100,000 images spanning the 2,300 kilometre reef system are now available to scientists on the Catlin Global Reef Record.

    High-definition database
    The Great Barrier Reef records, collected in collaboration with scientists from the Global Change Institute (GCI) at The University of Queensland, now include more than 100,000 images from 32 locations along the length of the UNESCO World Heritage Marine Site. The library of data and images is the most extensive published visual record of the Great Barrier Reef and includes 360-degree images, accurately GPS located. Chief Scientist of the project, Professor Ove Hoegh-Guldberg, said: “This is the largest single collection of survey photographs of the Great Barrier Reef in history”. To mark the publication of the full database, images have also been released through Street View in Google Maps. Featuring 20 reefs, ranging across the entire length of the Great Barrier Reef, they are available for anyone to access and explore online.
