Using the 3D information provided by photometric or spectroscopic weak lensing surveys, it has become possible in the last few years to address the problem of mapping the matter density contrast in three dimensions from gravitational lensing. We recently proposed a new non linear sparsity based reconstruction method allowing for high resolution reconstruction of the over-density. This new technique represents a significant improvement over previous linear methods and opens the way to new applications of 3D weak lensing density reconstruction. In particular, we demonstrate that for the first time reconstructed over-density maps can be used to detect and characterise galaxy clusters in mass and redshift.
