Wildfire Remote Sensing Workshop

A workshop on the Role of Remote Sensing in Wildfire Management and Research will be held from 20th to 22th 2017 of June in Montreal (Canada).

The Wildfire Remote Sensing Workshop is a 2.5 day long program within the larger EO Summit 2017. It will bring together the Canadian and international community involved that uses remote sensing as applied to wildfire. Several aspects of management and research will be addressed, including areas that relate to pre-fire monitoring and post-fire mapping. It covers the involvements from ground to space, and touches on popular topics such as the use of drones, international collaboration and the cost of fires.

The workshop objectives :

  1. To provide a status on current capabilities in remote sensing applied to all phases of wildland fire management and research (pre-fire, during fire and post-fire).
  2. To better understand the challenges related to implementing remote sensing and fire research into operational fire management.
  3. To identify areas of collaboration between ground-, air- and space capabilities to strengthen wildfire management in Canada and abroad.
  4. To bring together leaders and experts in the remote sensing and wildland fire community from Canada and abroad to explore, discuss, establish or strengthen collaborations and partnerships to support wildland fire management and research.
