firemaps.net at the 37th ISRSE in South Africa

firemaps.net supports fire management planning through information on burned area, fuel consumption, biomass burned and emissions of greenhouse gases and particulate matter, as well as on the timing of the fires. This information is derived from burned area datasets and from observations of the burning fires through infrared sensors and presented in interactive maps in the web.

The 37th International Symposium on Remote Sensing of Environment (ISRSE-37) will convene in Tshwane, South Africa 8 to 12 May 2017. The theme is “Earth Observation for Development and Adaptation to a Changing World”.
This will be the second time in this millennium that the African continent will host ISRSE. The event takes place at a time of rapid development in African space science and technology sector. ZEBRIS has been active on the African continent in recent projects supporting fire monitoring in Tanzania, in transfrontier National Parks in South Africa and Mozambique, and is currently supporting fire management in the World Heritage Site Comoé National Park in Ivory Coast.

Apart from presenting firemaps.net at our booth (number 23) at ISRSE, we report on our latest work in the wildfire session on Thursday 9th May und the title “Analyzing fire behavior from space using high and medium resolution IR sensors”.
More hot stuff is shown in our talk “detecting and analyzing gas flares using Sentinel 3 and FireBird” in the session on greenhouse gases on Wednesday 10th March.
