Candidate burned areas maps by bi-temporal images

Type(s) 2. Thematic Services
Forest Monitoring/Management 
Abstract The Candidate burned areas maps by bi-temporal images is a special version of the vegetation change detection service that identifies candidate burned areas on bi-temporal basis making use of SOIL MAPPERŪ spectral classification maps; a candidate burned area is defined as an area where a change from any vegetation class to any bare soil class occurs in a timeframe of maximum ten days; the service is applied to MODIS image pairs selected from the MEEO MODIS database. The service generates two output files:
- the discrete candidate burned areas map based on the SOIL MAPPERŪ classification variation;
- the continue candidate burned areas image based on the SOIL MAPPERŪ vegetation index variation;
The service is currently available free-of-charge to authorised ESA Category 1 users only.

SOIL MAPPERŪ is an original remote sensing image classifier developed by Meteorological and Environmental Earth Observation (MEEO, http://www.meeo.it/). It is a fully automated, spectral rule-based classifier, capable of mapping multi-spectral satellite images onto a discrete set of output spectral classes. SOIL MAPPERŪ can be currently applied to the following sensors / formats::

- LANDSAT 5 TM / CEOS
- LANDSAT 7 ETM+ / CEOS, GeoTIFF
- SPOT-4 HRVIR / DIMAP
- SPOT-5 HRG / DIMAP
- MODIS / HDF
- AVHRR / KLM/SHARP
- ATSR2-AATSR / ENVISAT
- IRS / LGSOWG (Super Structure)
- Quickbird / GeoTIFF
- IKONOS / GeoTIFF
- AVNIR-2 / CEOS
