mFORESTER – Wildfire Mobile System for Data Management and Communication
Forest fires are a reality that every year plagues Portugal. Over the past 10 years, more than 1,000,000 hectares have burned and the predictions are that climate change will increasingly potentiate extreme events that lead to disastrous years becoming more frequent.
An analysis of the Forest fire combat system in Portugal reveals a dependence on still very rudimentary means for the planning of the firefighting considering the technological evolutions of the present and policies of firefighting cemented mainly in the acquisition of more resources.
Given the growing need to integrate technological means into the fire-fighting, a decision support system was developed for forest fire-fighting based on low-cost technologies and to make available to commanders in the theater of operations more data to enable faster and more informed decisions.
