UPDATED LAND COVER MAPPING

Rational

Updated land cover data is fundamental for risk assessment and modelling of fire spread

Image Classification

Change detection methods for near-real time map updating

Machine learning and Artificial Intelligence

Objectives

Production of a land cover map in raster format – COSsim (Simplified COS):

Map based on the national vector map COS, but with a simpler nomenclature (9)

Map updated at the beginning of the fire season and updated with cut and burnt areas

Automatically produced from multi-temporal and multi-spectral Sentinel-2 data
