A new data article on “A high-resolution 4D terrestrial laser scan dataset of the Kijkduin beach-dune system, The Netherlands” was just published in Scientific Data. Along with the fully openly available dataset, the article presents insights into the importance of frequent and spatially detailed surface measurements – and what to do with them.
