Webinar: Techniques for Wildfire Detection and Monitoring Part 2

Date: July 19, 2018
Presenter(s): Cynthia L. Schmidt, Amber Jean McCullum, Joshua J. Picotte
Description: This session will provide an overview of the Global Wildfire Information System (GWIS) and a hands-on demonstration on the use of the GWIS viewer. GWIS is an online web application that uses remotely sensed wildfire data. This data includes fire danger, wildfire locations, burned area extent, and burn severity. GWIS also focuses on sharing data and operational plans between researchers, managers, and agencies. Demonstrations and tools will introduce participants to applications of the GWIS tool, including identifying active fire from MODIS and VIIRS data, evaluating burned areas with MODIS data, and assessing fire emissions such as black carbon and particulate matter.
