The disruptive power of the ground beneath our feet cannot be underestimated. We live on a dynamic Earth, reacting to human pressures and a changing climate which presents risks that we must quickly understand and appropriately manage. Terrafirma’s experts extract knowledge from information captured across centuries; from literature, maps, ground investigations, hand-picked data partners and more recently, from space.
