Burnt area extraction


Coming back soon: currently not available. Burnt Area Extraction by temporal analysis for forest fires.

Technical information

Burnt Area Extraction creates a georeferenced binary output for analyzing the extent of burnt areas. It uses Short Wave Infra Red for area classification and learns the patterns to create an accurate vector layer in the last step.

Apart from causing tragic loss of lives and valuable natural and individual properties including thousands of hectares of forest and hundreds of houses, forest fires are a great menace to ecologically healthy grown forests and protection of the environment. Every year, thousands of forest fires across the globe cause disasters beyond measure and description.

Recommended Workflow

  • Sentinel-2 Level 2 (GeoTIFF) -> Burnt Area Extraction

This algorithm requires a pre-event and post-event image - please set the parameter ‘limit’ = 2 (alternative: time_series). This algorithm only works with data that has the SWIR band included.
