Forest fires prediction

forest fires



Conservation of forest resources and prevention of forest fires are fundamental activities to mitigate and reduce climate change impacts. There are already services and projects to monitor, through remote and proximal sensing data, the progression of forest fires and the condition that can trigger and foster them. The goal in Forest fires prediction is to set up and apply a model based on remote data such as satellite images, and proximal data like ground sensors (IoT), also able to incorporate medium term meteorological predictions, to provide a forest fire risk analysis service. This service will support the green areas and natural parks’ management to preserve the forest resources of the area, and at the same time to guarantee the safety of human settlements nearby.
