The Dutch Deltaworks by drone


Much of the Netherlands lies below sea level and is thus prone to flooding.  Over the centuries, the Dutch developed advanced water control technologies to keep the land from being washed away by the sea.  The Dutch Deltaworks is one of the keys to this whole flood control system.  Top contributor Mike Zwijgers used a DJI Mavic Pro drone to create this amazing video showing this sophisticated system from an aerial perspective.
