In WG3 we are looking for participants for a benchmark hackathon for software solutions that process close-range point clouds from forests. It will take place on 25-29 September, 2023, at TU Wien (Austria). One of the main aims of WG3 is to compile and evaluate algorithms and software that is relevant for 3DForEcoTech. We have...

We are currently looking for a person to lead the preparation of newsletters for the 3DForEcoTech COST Action (four per year).

Technologies-Biodiversity-Modelling Aim & ObjectivesThe increasing rates of changes in environmental conditions put higher pressure on science to provide robust estimates of future ecosystem development. We need robust approaches to measure the current state, understand the processes and then accurately predict the development of forest ecosystems. In this view, the members of three COST Actions (3DForEcoTech,...
