SPOTLIGHT: Fort McMurray Wildfires
This WorldView-3 satellite sensor acquired Short Wave InfraRed (SWIR) Imagery on May 6, 2016 to see through the dense smoke to identify wildfire hotspots. This SWIR scene, at low resolution and not fully processed, is covering part of the devastating wildfires at Fort McMurray in Alberta, Canada. Satellite imagery and GIS maps support fire and emergency personnel for responding to emergency situations, firefighting, rehabilitation, and restoration. In order to model wildfires, the techniques for obtaining, analyzing and displaying spatial information in a timely and cost-effective manner are needed which has proven not only to be possible, but incredibly efficient and effective.
