According to Wired magazine, Google is teaming up with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to produce detailed maps of the Earth's oceans, which will be retrievable online. As a preview, they're offering an image of the Pacific near Okinawa, Japan. Personally I think it looks quite promising:

Will this collaboration help to map the previously unmapped floor of the ocean? I don't know the exact number, I thought that a rather large portion of the Ocean floor is unmapped at this point.

Not directly I think, Seed. As I understand the article, the NOAA has ongoing projects to map the ocean floor anyway. It is now using Google to visualize their findings and publish them to the general public.

@Thomas,
Leave it to the new Google Maps Ocean Scene to find the lost city of Atlantis. I mean they found Waldo already.
