Burnt Forest within Canada for 1998 and 1999 derived from SPOT VEGETATION and NOAA/AVHRR
Entry ID: Canada_CCRS_BurntForest98-99

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Fraser et al. have developed a technique for annual burnt area mapping of
boreal forest. The method, dubbed HANDS (Hotspot and NDVI Differencing
Synergy), combines multi-temporal change detection with active fire monitoring.
In conventional spectral change detection approaches (e.g. image differencing)
a significant challenge is to establish a threshold suitable for ... View entire text
