Short Term Scientific Mission (12/2022)

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.

Please, if you are interested send your CV and motivation to following emails Suzanne Marselis (s.m.marselis@cml.leidenuniv.nl), Markus Hollaus (markus.hollaus@geo.tuwien.ac.at) and 3DForEcoTech (3dforecotech@gmail.com).

The deadline for applying is 18.12.2022

Aim & Objectives: Novel terrestrial-based technologies play an important part in monitoring forest ecosystems. Such technologies have experienced a fast development in recent years. Within this summer school we will introduce the theory, practical work and analysis of 3D terrestrial-based sensors. This includes various types of terrestrial laser scanning, mobile laser scanning, as well as...

3DForEcoTech is a COST Action focusing on three-dimensional close range technologies and how to use them for monitoring and a better understanding of #forest ecosystems. We will launch grant calls, training schools, meetings and multiple challenging tasks. So, follow us! FaceBook / Twitter / YouTube

Within the 3DForEcoTech COST Action www.cost.eu/actions/CA20118, we want to create a workflow database of all solutions for processing detailed point clouds of forest ecosystems. If you are a developer, tester or user do not hesitate to submit the solution/algorithm Here
