Google Launches 'Treasure Mode'

Google is engaged in a new crowd-sourcing project inviting millions of users to help in the hunt for buried treasure using a new "treasure mode" on its maps:
The company posted a video on YouTube explaining how Street View's "underwater team" discovered a chest containing lost maps during an expedition to the Indian Ocean. Dr. Marco Meniketti, an independent archaeologist, confirmed that this was Captain Kidd’s 315 year-old map. The video explains how hidden treasure symbols can be unearthed on the maps, which have been digitised by a special 3D nanoscanner. Google marketing manager Mike Pegg says: "The map is rumoured to contain the clues to Captain Kidd's long lost treasure, however the map contains encrypted symbols and codes and is not readily decipherable. "Therefore, we're introducing treasure mode on Google Maps and inviting the whole world to come together in the search for clues."
It seems everybody is looking for ancient buried Treasure these days.
