Star formation is arguably one of the most fundamental processes in the observable universe. It drives and regulates the energy budget of entire galaxies on both small and large scales and so critically determines their evolution. New stars are born in giant accumulations of gas and dust, so-called molecular clouds, but little is still known about these intriguing objects. To expand our knowledge and understanding of these complexes, it is therefore critical to investigate the properties of molecular clouds in a homogeneous and self-consistent manner. Much of our understanding of the formation of stars originates from the nearby (
