Abstract

Wildland fires are destructive to properties and dangerous to people in close proximity, with the cost of some large fires exceeding $1 billion. The goal of the Fire Monitoring Assessment Platform (FireMAP) is to provide fire managers with the tools and knowledge for acquiring, analyzing, and managing hyper-resolution imagery to map burn severity in a faster, safer, and more affordable manner than is currently possible.

The FireMAP Spectral Analysis includes vegetation common to Idaho as well as ash from post-burn sites. This effort investigates whether spectral response can be utilized to differentiate between classes of vegetation and ash. If successful, this will assist in the determination of fire severity and extent.
