Coahuila, Mexico Fire Disaster

Tuesday, November 5th, 2013

While at the ASPRS “Imaging and Mapping for Disaster Management: From the Individual to the Global Community” I attended many excellent talks about remotely-sensed solutions for disaster management.  An excellent presentation, given jointly by Rohini Swaninathan (NASA Intern) and Pedro Juan Rodriguez Rivera, reported on the use of freely available, satellite-based, remote sensing technologies and GIS solutions to help identify hotspots of large fires burning in Mexico. This project was prompted because of the 2011 fire in Coahuila, Mexico, where nearly 100,000 hectares of land were burned, costing the Mexican government to spend over 19 million US dollars.
