The project addresses fire prevention and control in the Mediterranean region. The main focus of this project will be on long-terming fire prevention. Fire prevention, pre-suppression, and suppression all require information on fuelcharacteristrics (e.g. composition, structure, spatial distribution), infrastructure, and terrain (topography). This information is required in a timely and accurate manner, and in a format that is easy to handle and use for integrating into strategic plans for fire suppression management. The information will be designed for the district and sector forest unit level, but be capable of being integrated to higher levels, as necessary. The aim of this proposal will be to create an Internet application to assist forest managers in long-term fire prevention management.
