Introduction

Deep in the Tian Shan, a team of scientists and storytellers work to survey hidden caves and protect one of the most remote mountain ranges on earth.

This is the story of how we are beginning to use a completely new way of exploration, using smart technology to our advantage in extremely remote and difficult terrain. Working together across disciplines, we are able to capture huge areas of wilderness in full 3D – meaning we can bring a small part of the planet with us back home for further analysis.
