Topic: A survey related to the objectives of 3DForEcoTech COST Action

Description: The most important thing is to create a survey (questionnaire) related to the 3DForEcoTech COST ACTION. The main topic should include answers to questions such as: 

  • Who is interested in close range photogrammetry technology in forest management and ecology?
  • What are the problems faced by end users in applying the technology in practice?
  • What are the challenges in implementing close range photogrammetry solutions? 

The design of the questionnaire will be carried out in collaboration with the Core Group of the 3DForEcoTech COST Action.

The general workload will be as follows:

  • 1-2 weeks – drafting the survey (WG6 with the support of the Core Group)
  • 1 week – distribution of the survey
  • 3 weeks – collection of responses in a structured table
  • 2 weeks – analysis of the responses
  • 2 weeks – preparation of the report
  • 3-4 weeks – preparation of the publication

The background of the candidate: Related to the 3DForEcoTech COST Action topic

Location: Forest Research Institute, Sękocin Stary, Poland; Host: Krzysztof Stereńczak,  FRI

Expected period:  15th July – 9th October 2023

Estimation of the expenses: 4000 €
