Underground Map shows Over 30 Buried Buildings at 16 Locations Detected in Shenzhen Landslide China’s Shenzhen Kuang-Chi Institute of Advanced Technology has submitted a map listing the 16 locations where 30 buildings were buried as key excavation areas to the Shenzhen landslide rescue team.

Applying aerial observation and thermal imaging technology, the institute compared the geographic information of the buried area before and after the landslide. According to Liu Ruopeng, director of the Shenzhen Kuang-Chi Institute, a crane equipped with multi-functional high resolution earth observer and an emergency response floating platform called “Cloud mini” were also used in the mapping.

“As most buildings were scattered from their original positions and buried deeply by the mud, it is very hard for the rescue team to locate excavation areas. The map, spotting nearly all the buried buildings, can assist the rescue work greatly,” Liu said.
