How aerial lidar surveys are being used to manage forest fires

Forest fires are a natural occurrence, but when they get out of control they can cause massive damage. In order to prevent and manage forest fires, many agencies are turning to lidar surveys. Lidar technology allows for the collection of high-resolution data that can be used to create 3D models of an area. This information is invaluable in helping fire management teams plan their response to a fire, and it can also be used to assess the damage afterwards.

Aerial Lidar surveys are just one way that technology is being used to help manage forest fires. Other tools, such as satellite imaging and drones, are also being used to collect data about the fires. This information is then fed into computer models that can help predict how the fire will spread and what resources will be needed to fight it.

With the right tools and planning, forest fires can be managed more effectively and with less damage. Aerial Lidar surveys are playing a vital role in this process, and they will continue to do so in the future.
