Trends have shown that wildland fire seasons are growing longer and fires are continuing to increase in total area and size. Simultaneously, remote sensing technologies continue to advance and are being used more and more to aid emergency responders. The American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) Pacific Southwest (PSW) Region invites you to participate in its first series that aims to explore the myriad ways that remote sensing can support wildfire preparedness, active incidents, and future management.

Intended Audience

  • Wildland firefighting community
  • Remote Sensing & research community
  • Public and private environmental and forestry businesses
  • Utility companies and agencies
  • Educators and champions to share the benefits and uses of remote sensing technologies.

Intended Outcome

  • Bring the remote sensing and wildland fire communities together
  • Discuss current operational wildland firefighting tactics and related remote sensing technologies, including existing workflows, incremental improvements, and leading-edge research and technologies
  • Better educate community members regarding available remote sensing data sources, offerings, and capabilities
  • Enable discussions that lead to the creation of more usable remote sensing products for use before, during, and after wildfires, through networking opportunities, panel discussions, and brokered discussions
