Shipwrecked treasure allegedly found with help from Google Maps


Google Earth and Maps is more than a noveltiy to this guy. Supposably he located a shipwrecked boat laden gold and silver worth around $3 billion. Billion. That’s a lot of booty. But wait, there is more.

He uses the Google tools to keep a watchful eye on his location while he pursues the legal path of gaining permission to dig. It seems that the area in question has been claimed by some estate while this guy says its in open water and therefore free to excavation. No matter how the court battle turns out, it’s great to see Google Maps being used for something other than casual peeping toms and Monday morning time wasting.
