Having already mapped Antarctica and the North Pole, Google has added panoramic images of coral reefs on Google Street View. Google gathered the materials through the Catlin Seaview Survey, a project designed to study the health of coral reefs. Scientists with the Catlin Group, based in Bermuda, used a trio of wide-angle lenses snapping 24-megapixel photos from each lens. Among the coral reef added to the maps: Australia's Great Barrier Reef, Hawaii's Hanauma Bay and the Philippines' Apo Island.

Would you license your personal data to advertising platforms if you were paid directly for it?
Yes -- So much of my personal data is already in the hands of advertisers anyhow; I may as well be paid for it.
Possibly -- It depends how much I would be compensated and how the data I authorize to share would be used and protected.
No -- I would not sell my personal data at any price.
