National Observatory of Forest Fires – NOFFi aims to develop a series of modern products and services for supporting the efficient forest fire prevention management in Greece and the Balkan region, as well as to stimulate the development of transnational fire prevention and impacts mitigation policies.
More specifically, NOFFi provides three main fire-related products and services:
- a remote sensing-based fuel type mapping methodology
- a semi-automatic burned area mapping service
- a dynamically updatable fire danger index providing mid-term predictions.
