The Vampire project, developed for the Catania Province, is dedicated to the use of satellite data in the field of Fire Risk for the production of:

  • Maps of the Burnt areas
  • Hot Spots
  • Maps of risk

Thanks to VAMPIRE they have been realised some GIS layers containing data of the Italian Fire Fighters activities for 1999 and the basic cartography.

Landsat TM images have been acquired for the years 1996-1999. Maps of the areas affected by fire have been created from those images.

The 1999 data of the Hot Spots have been provided daily from the ERS-ATRS satellite to the European Space Agency to Mestor (available on-line), while the data regarding the previous years have been inserted into the GIS system.

Project developed by Mestor snc. Results and skills transferred to IES Solutions.
