The first suite of instruments and associated science cases for a larger facility at Dome C are mainly targeted towards imaging and surveys. While the potential advantages for astronomical observations from Antarctica are applicable to both imaging and spectroscopy, spectrographs are more complex to build and harder to use in a fully automatic and remote operation. However, the innovative technique of 3D-Spectroscopy (3DS) offers imaging and spectroscopic capabilities simultaneously with applications to a wide range of astronomical programmes. Furthermore, 3DS provides several operational benefits, that are well suited for a location such as Antarctica.
