Assessing Forest Wildfire Damage from Space
How we can support foresters in making informed salvage decisions
No day goes by without a wildfire burning in some part of the world. Fires are spreading across larger areas and burning more severely than ever before in modern times. To manage this increasing threat to our natural landscape effectively and salvage any remaining commercially viable timber after a fire, foresters need all the data they can get their hands on as quickly as possible. In this article we reveal why geospatial data analytics is the ideal technology for this purpose.
Assess severity of fire
After the event, establish which areas are salvageable.
Date fire damage
Accurately date damage and its progress over time.
Effects of fire damage
Assess the count, volume & value of affected trees.
