The collaboration project FireSense is aiming at developing an improved fire information system to support environmental agencies, protected area management and fire fighter. It includes the assessment of vegetation and peat fires, derivation of trace gas and aerosol emissions and the mapping of burned areas. It integrates sensor derived data from drones, planes or helicopters and satellites with newly developed and substantially improved algorithms. New, scheduled or already orbiting satellite sensors enable essentially improved ways to monitor fires through greater spatial resolution, finer temporal resolution (geostationary satellites) and through a better quantitative characterisation of fire.
