Burned Area Emergency Response (BAER) Imagery Support
Entry ID: USDA_BAER

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The Burned Area Emergency Response (BAER) Imagery Support program is a
cooperative effort between the USDA Forest Service Remote Sensing Applications
Center and the US Geological Survey EROS Data Center. They provide delivery of
Burned Area Reflectance Classifications (BARC), and other geospatial data to
Forest Service and DOI BAER teams.

A Burned Area Reflectance Classification (BARC) is a satellite derived map of
postfire condition. The BARC has four classes: high, moderate, low and
unburned. It is available in both raster and vector format.
