DOWN TO EARTH WEBINAR

15:00 - 17:00

Down to Earth is back!

 

This time going deep in the earth and flying high over the Great Pit…

 

Down to Earth is stepping out of the office and over the edge of the Great Pit in Falun Sweden. Watch as the engineering company Sweco uses drone surveying equipment from Microdrones to survey the Falun Mine to help uncover any hidden settlements, land shifts or other terrain hazards lurking in the grounds of the historic attraction.

 

“Down to Earth” is a reality series that shows how real surveyors collect data and turn it into real deliverables, despite challenging conditions, rugged terrain and lurking danger.
