DATA FUSION OF SENSOR NETWORKS
AND FIRE SPREAD MODELLING
FOR DECISION SUPPORT
IN FOREST FIRE SUPPRESSION

In the last 20 years, Portugal has been severely affected
by large wildfires with dramatic consequences.

The main objective of this project is to combine the expertise of several institutions of the scientific community to provide sound and efficient tools capable of improving decision making during wildfires crisis to minimize its negative consequences.

DGT (Direção-Geral do Território) is developing methods based on Artificial Intelligence

DGT (Direção-Geral do Território) is developing methods based on Artificial Intelligence to produce land cover maps and change detection based on intra- and inter-annual time series of Sentinel-2 satellite images and expert knowledge.

The maps produced differ from DGT’s current Land Use and Land cover map (COS) in that they represent land occupation in 13 classes in raster format (10-meter pixels), while COS also represents classes of land use in vector format with a minimum mapping unit of 1 ha.
