Shot the Fire

Forest fire Recognition and detection of fires in photographs and coordinates


A web-based application was created to inform:

  • Population about forest fires and evacuation directions from them;
  • Fire-rescue units about location of effected people who need their assistance.

How does it work:

  • Effected person uploads photo of fire with geolocation mark to app.
  • App makes verification of image.
  • App is connected with NASA databases and creates prognosis of fire parameters.
  • App counts evacuation ways from the place of fire & inform the people about them.
  • App is shared with dates with fire-rescue units.

Key issue of application is the possibility of counting the evacuation ways of effected people from the disaster area which based on fire development prognosis.
