Project Details

Description

The project seeks to provide high resolution mapping of burnt areas through the active fire season in the Darwin region to support strategic fuel reduction activities and emergency response planning. A detailed and up-to-date picture of fuel loads based on recent fire history information provides a more sophisticated and reliable way to plan reduction burns and asses risks during active fires. Providing this data on-line through the North Australia Fire Information (NAFI) service and leveraging the mobile NAFI app under development will allow users to undertake near real time assessments of fire spread risk.
