Dear 3DForEcoTech community,

it is already two years since we started the 3DForEcoTech COST Action project. I already see the huge impact these years have had on me and on many others. When we were writing the project proposal, I had in my mind that the goal should be to create a strong enough motion to shift or move our field.

This approach has inspired many great researchers to join us on this journey. After two years of the project, I see it is really possible. We know that the point clouds created by ground-based technologies are unique in many ways and irreplaceable within the earth observation. The spatial and temporal resolution that we can achieve is, in many ways, magical and challenging simultaneously.

However, we need to convince others. As experts, we play a critical role in translating and standardising these technologies. We have already positively influenced many young researchers through internships, training schools, conferences, and other exciting ways. In the following two years, we will bring many great results to help the community thrive.
