Active fire detection using satellite data.
Track: Wildland Fire Management
Authors: goo kim
Recently, there were massive fires throughout the world because of climate change.
Monitoring means for fires are needed. Satellite is a useful tool for monitoring wildfire because it can provide a series of near real-time data for wide areas observed by multi sensors. We did training algorithm using data on Apr 2011.We evaluated the applicability of the our algorithm using korea survey data. Our algorithm detection rate was about 86% and more fire cases should be tested for improving accuracy.
