Monitoring of fires in Portugal for EMERCOM (Russia) (18.06.17)

         As a part of cooperation with Ministry of Emergency Situations (Russia) Innovative Centre Company performed a monitoring of fires in Portugal (Leiria, Koimbra).

Monitoring was performed in IMAGE MEDIA CENTER software based on the Terra Modis data received on the June 18, 2017.

Analysis of the data showed that as of June 18, 2017 the area affected by the fires is larger than 260 km2. On the burnt area there were 29 Inhabited locality. The report was generated automatically based on the results of monitoring performed in IMC software.

Vector polygons of the affected territories are created as the result of monitoring. Results were collated with the map of population density of Portugal for more detailed evaluation of the damage caused by fire.

Functional capabilities of IMC software make it possible to analyze and process vector and raster data in a single geoinformational environment, which significantly reduces processing time. It benefits to rapid decision-making which is especially important for real-time emergency situations monitoring.
