Building digital twins from 3D laser scanning data will open a realm of untapped research questions and applications that call for the most detailed 3D information on canopy structure possible. These insights are also urgently needed to reduce uncertainties and advance the forecasting of carbon stocks and dynamics within the context of the IPCC.
Mikko Vastaranta: We are driven by our experiences and feelings – a challenge for forest information
We live in a world with abundance of data, information and knowledge, even wisdom. So why are we in a situation like this, struggling with overconsumption of the natural resources, biodiversity loss and depletion of the soil?
Gamification can be a solution for both learning and improving the acceptability of forest use. As a forest owners organisation, we want to be involved in promoting sustainable use of forests through gamification. From the very beginning of the UNITE flagship, we have been interested, open and active in the opportunities that gamification could offer.
