Global Nominee

The Challenge | Spot That Fire!

Build a crowdsourcing tool for citizens to contribute to early detection, verification, tracking, visualization, and notification of wildfires.

Early Fire Alert

The project is to prevent forest fires. The good thing about our project is that it sends an SMS to the next user, before the fire happens


The project is described by following steps:

  1. The forest will be monitored by sensor temperature, humidity, and solar radiation.
  2. If the temperature and the solar radiation increase and the humidity goes down, the system checks if the nasa satellite data is pointing high temperature for this temperature. Then an sms will be sent from the gsm module to the next user.
  3. The user will go to the place of the incident, and take a photo from our app. the photo will be sent to our database. A recognition algorithm will be applied to the photo if it detects a possible fire. Local police and firefighters will be alerted to a possible fire.

SpaceApps is a NASA incubator innovation program.
