Creating Wildfire Mortality Maps and Metrics from Landsat Images
A detailed wildfire burn pattern database is the cornerstone of the collective NRV requirements of government, the Forest Stewardship Council and the Canadian Boreal Forest Agreement.
This project will create a methodology for using Landsat imagery to supplement the more expensive and time consuming aerial photography.
