This multiplying event brought students and professionals closer to the possibilities offered by virtual visits to forests in marteloscopes and 3D maps of stands both in forestry and in forestry education itself.

The Eberswalde University for Sustainable Development hosted this VirtualForests project multiplier event, which introduced to forest stand mensuration based on remote sensing technologies, 3D stand virtualization and growth simulation, and related analytical pipelines.

The workshop provided an invaluable opportunity to delve into the application and implications of IoT technology in the field of sustainable forest and natural resources management. By contextualizing the “digital revolution,” the Virtual Forest project aims to develop educational materials that empower students and professionals worldwide to acquire applied technology competencies necessary for effective and sustainable management of forests.
