Assessing Forest Wildfire Damage from Space.
How we support foresters in making informed salvage decisions using satellite data analytics.
- After the event, establish which areas are salvageable.
- Accurately date damage and its progress over time.
- Assess the count, volume & value of affected trees.
- Map the location and extent of fire damage.
Manage the Increasing Threat from Forest Fires
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.
