Mapping bushfire hazard and impact


Little accurate and timely spatial information is currently available on bushfire hazard and impacts.

Mapping Bushfire Hazard and Impact


A good understanding of fire risk across the landscape is critical in preparing and responding to bushfire events and managing fire regimes, and this will be enhanced by remote sensing data. However, the vast array of spatial data sources available is not being used very effectively in fire management.

This project uses cutting edge technology and imagery to produce spatial information on fire hazard and impacts needed by planners, land managers and emergency services to effectively manage fire at landscape scales

Mapping forest fuel load and structure from airborne LiDAR data


Australia is a dry continent, with high climate variability, and is continually vulnerable to natural hazards like bushfires. to better evaluate and reduce the risk of bushfires, fire management agencies and land managers need timely, accurate and spatially explicit understorey fuel metrics along with climatic and other spatial topographical information. The Light detection and ranging (LiDAR) data and technology is a proven alternative to traditionally time consuming and labour intensive fuel assessment methods.

Marta Yebra Conference Poster 2016


Live fuel moisture content (LFMC) is one of the primary variables affecting bushfire flammability.

Narshima Garlapati Conference Poster 2016


The availability of spatially explicit quantitative forest information is critical for fire management

The Australian Flammability Monitoring System


The first national-scale, pre-operational, near-real time live fuel moisture content and flammability monitoring system for Australia.
