NZer on a mission to digitally map trees around the world

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:25 pm on 30 November 2020

Joseph Michael has captured a 3D archive of the Amazon forest, and after COVID derailed his plans he's also doing the same thing back here in New Zealand with our forests.

He talks to Jesse about how he's digitally mapping the trees and why the Amazon is a crucial part of his project.
