Forest Fire Monitoring

The increasing rate of occurrence of forest fires has increased the concern over their impacts on climate change and fragile ecosystems. This requires efficient and effective methods for forest fire detection for near- real time monitoring so as to minimise these impacts.


Near Real Time Fire Detection

Using satellite technology, we can monitor the forest fires on a daily basis and pinpoint exact source of the fire origin. Use of meteorological data like temperature on that current location, wind speed, wind direction to predict which direction, the fire is flowing.

Burnt Area Assessment

Fire affected areas can be discriminated in a remote sensing image due to the strong contrast with the unburned areas. Burn scar maps derived from remote sensing images provide information on the spatial extent and distribution of the fire affected areas, and the total area burned. The burned area, together with land cover information, provide the basis for estimating emission of carbon dioxide and other gases implicated for global climate change, and for assessment of fire damage to the economy and environment.
