Google maps for the undersea world? A new University of Georgia project is designed to make that become a reality.

The project, Mapping Deep Blue Habitat in a Changing Climate, aims to create an underwater 3-D map that illustrates spatial information about habitat characteristics like temperature, oxygen, light, using computational and graphical tools so that scientists, stakeholders, and the public can “see” how the ocean habitats will change.

The project was among 21 interdisciplinary seed grants totaling $1.55 million announced June 12 by the National Academies Keck...
