The Geol. Survey Branch (a Government agency) will be flying a drone over Mt. Wellington/Organ pipes again tomorrow. We had issues with fog this morning so will make another attempt tomorrow morning. See first post for details. We'll be positioned over the Ampitheatre and will have a spotter on the Organ Pipes Track for most of the time.
The Geol. Survey Branch (a Government agency) will be flying a drone over Mt. Wellington/Organ pipes tomorrow. Please be aware/take care if you intend on going climbing up there (between 7:30-10:30 am tomorrow morning). We'll have several spotters, radios etc. and will take every measure to make sure we do this as safely as we possibly can.
The work will enable us to build a 3D model of the Organ Pipes for geo-hazard mapping/planning purposes (nothing to do with the cable car proposal just in case anyone is wondering!).
Sorry if it's annoying/inconvenient for anyone (but hopefully shouldn't last too long!).
