Forestry Guide: Assessing Forest Wildfire Damage From Space
This guide explores how geospatial AI can alert foresters to wildfire, its extent and damage severity, enabling a rapid response to extract highest value timber before it degrades further.

Manage the increasing threat of forest fire
To effectively manage the increasing threat from fire to our natural landscape and salvage remaining commercially viable timber after a fire, foresters need data. In this guide, we reveal how geospatial analytics can be used to:
Assess damage severity
Data view across vast geographic areas, drilled down to individual tree level.
Detailed analysis of affected trees
Provides insights on severity of burn, location and potential salvageable inventory.
Rapidly respond to maximise value
Quickly define and execute remediation activities to maximise timber values.
Respond rapidly to drive value
Our fire severity product enables forestry leaders to remotely evaluate post-fire risks and calculate the value of salvageable timber – quickly. It uses satellite and multiple data feeds fused with advanced AI to identify the extent of fire damage to tree canopies and low-level vegetation. It also analyses previous fire data and determines where and when fire is likely to return and the potential severity. Use these insights to rapidly direct ground crews and monetise salvageable lumber faster.
