Working Group 2 – Data Fusion
Systematic literature review of data fusion for lidar
Duration: 4-6 weeks.
Timing: February-March 2023.
Location: Leiden, the Netherlands
Total estimated grant: between 3000-4000 euros depending on the duration and travelling expenses
Description: This Short Term Scientific Mission is an important part of the WG2 (data fusion) activities. During this STSM the successful candidate will perform a systematic literature review of all literature related to data fusion for lidar with other data sources (e.g. optical, microwave, in-situ). The candidate will use specific search terms to make a first selection of scientific papers. Subsequently, the candidate will use a coding scheme to classify the information in the papers based on the abstracts information. After this classification a smaller selection of papers will be chosen that will be analyzed in detail, in part by the STSM candidate. The results of this STSM will be used as input for a manuscript on the state-of-the art of data fusion techniques for lidar data for forest structure. The candidate is expected to have 4-6 weeks of full-time availability for this project, experience with lidar, (some) knowledge of data fusion approaches, and ideally experience with a systematic literature review.
Rules of the COST Action: Short-Term Scientific Mission consists in a visit to a host organization located in a different country than the country of affiliation, so in this case in it is not possible to offer STSM to scientists affiliated in the Netherlands.
