Firecast uses satellite observations to track fires and forest disturbances, delivering time-sensitive information to decision-makers through email alerts and mobile messaging.
Satellite-based fire locations provide intelligence to help technicians on the ground contain agricultural fires that can burn out of control and degrade nearby forests. 2015 © Flavio Forner
We aim to improve access and interpretability of satellite monitoring data to support on-the-ground decisions ranging from fire management and prevention to enforcing land-use policies. Near real-time monitoring from Firecast also provides invaluable information on ecosystem trends to support strategic land-use policies and conservation interventions.See where we work »
