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.

An Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) is a promising new technology which can greatly assist in wildland fire monitoring, specifically when analyzing burn areas after a wildfire. The goal of the post fire analysis is to determine extent and severity of the burn along with how the burn area changes over time, specifically observing the temporal degradation of white ash, an indicator of high burn severity.
