Alex Tait is the Geographer at the National Geographic Society, and in 2019 he led an expedition to map Mount Everest. "Our goals were to scan and perform detailed photogrammetry of the entire Khumbu glacier from the South Col all the way down to the toe of the glacier and to scan all of Everest Base Camp—at the highest resolution ever collected at Mount Everest," he writes. "The maps we produce from this data will help glaciologists and other scientists better understand the dynamics of the ice and snow on the mountain and how this area is changing due to a warming climate."
