Using Earth Observation Data to Monitor Wildfire Risk

Wildfires are becoming more frequent every year, and the threat they pose to natural landscapes and wildlife cannot be understated. However, state and local governments often don’t have the budget to properly combat climate disasters. With the increasing prevalence of wildfires and hazardous fuel leaks across the globe, state and local governments urgently need access to timely, cost-effective, and efficient mitigation programs.


What can state and local governments do to improve landscape visibility, protect local flora and fauna, and be better prepared for wildfires? Join Planet for an in-depth look at how their data can help governments better monitor forest health to protect natural resources and community infrastructure.
