Bring Google Into Your Dive Center

Last night, Google announced their Ocean Showcase, an extra layer for their free Google Earth product.

The Ocean Showcase features a National Geographic tour, Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute’s US West Coast discoveries, Eco-Nova’s Shipwreck Central, dive sites from WannaDive and 3D models of wrecks in the Great Lakes from NOAA.

Integrate Google Into Your SCUBA Store

I envision a modern dive center incorporating a large projection screen with computer attached (you should have this for teaching anyway) with a wireless mouse and keyboard.

As your customers come in asking about diving in new and exotic locations, let them “drive” Google Earth on a tour of the locations they’re interested in.

This is unique, cool, modern and will get people talking about you. And might just make them want to come back to play some more.

Are you using interactive media in your dive center?
