Nat Geo Explorer: Albert Yu-Min Lin

Albert Yu-Min Lin is a research scientist and engineer who explores beneath the ground without disturbing a blade of grass. Using cutting-edge tools such as satellite imagery and radar that can look underground, Lin is able to discover archaeological sites in places he can't visit in person. He and his colleagues collect billions of bits of data and make it into a digital, 3-D world that scientists and historians can navigate. He hopes these discoveries will inspire people to protect the sites and their treasures.
