Minimize Wildfires in Greece

This map, produced using SPOT-6/7 data, shows the fire damaged areas of Geraneia, Greece during wildfires in July 2018.

The International Charter: Space and Major Disasters was activated to provide satellite imagery for response efforts on 24 July 2018.

This map was produced for the Charter by SERTIT and distributed to the Charter through the Copernicus Emergency Management Service (EMS).

The SPOT-6/7 imagery used was acquired on 06 December 2017 and 25 July 2018 (before and during the fires). The resulting deliniation map shows a thematic layer in orange, which is derived by a semi aoutomated process which analyses the pre and post event images to determine fire damaged areas.
