  1. 1. ArcFUEL: ApproachAdjusted to FUELMAPPresentation at the JRC:by the ArcFUEL Consortium,Markos Bonazountas, Coordination6 December 2011 1
  2. 2. Informal Presentation Following the meeting with Ioannis & Giacomo; Thank you for the invitation of today. Presentation outline:  The ArcFUEL Life+ submission  Our revised approach in some detail  The stipulation to work with the JRC  The project expected coop-outcome  The subsequent steps up to 30/06/12Markos Bonazountas, EPSILON Greece, T:+30-210-6898615, M:+30-694-4307576 bonazountas@epsilon.gr 2
  3. 3. ArcFUEL Life+ contract The EC Life+ programme (20 years in 2012) Concluded Life projects since 1990 (Medspa) Proposal submitted 2010; awarded 2011 International Life+ with partners known to the JRC except EPSILON Duration: 1/10/11; 27 months/5 years, i.e., (M9/M12/M27+) Endeavors & Delivery:  Fuel map for the Med countries (Fire Management)  Added value service for 5 years Contacted JRC prior to proposal submission:  Asked for coop, after award  Today’s meeting expectations (30/6/2012 & after)Markos Bonazountas, EPSILON Greece, T:+30-210-6898615, M:+30-694-4307576 bonazountas@epsilon.gr 3
  4. 4. Contractual approach ArcFUEL is an alternative FUELMAP, i.e.:  Satellite data to vegetation map  Vegetation map & ancillary data to fuel map Target 50X50 resolution Less than 20 vegetation types and database of fuel model parameters for fire modeling Linked to models for FF apps, i.e.:  Booklet for fuel types, models & parameters  5 years webservice  Wide dissemination  Life+ promotionMarkos Bonazountas, EPSILON Greece, T:+30-210-6898615, M:+30-694-4307576 bonazountas@epsilon.gr 4
  5. 5. Evolution of approach Kick-off meeting (Oct/Ath), 1st Technical (4-5/11) We felt it appropriate not to re-invent the wheel to a large extent; rather to go “one step” further. On 4/11/11 we elaborated a revised approach to:  Capitalize on FUELMAP  Wisely send the EC/Life funding  Produce ArcFUEL with added value/FUELMAP  Mutual benefits and usage (in partnership) Today the revised approach  Introduction  Partners input  JRC commentingMarkos Bonazountas, EPSILON Greece, T:+30-210-6898615, M:+30-694-4307576 bonazountas@epsilon.gr 5
  6. 6. Revised approachMarkos Bonazountas, EPSILON Greece, T:+30-210-6898615, M:+30-694-4307576 bonazountas@epsilon.gr 6
  7. 7. Phase-I: Product [B]Markos Bonazountas, EPSILON Greece, T:+30-210-6898615, M:+30-694-4307576 bonazountas@epsilon.gr 7
  8. 8. Input data Static (2003) & dynamic No strong emphasis in satellite as in FUELMAP Use of FUELMAP for fuel types FUELMAP for 50X50 and …  CORINE LC, F/NF, LPIS, Google, …, DEM  Other data & info INSPIRE (final product) Other jointly coordinatedMarkos Bonazountas, EPSILON Greece, T:+30-210-6898615, M:+30-694-4307576 bonazountas@epsilon.gr 8
  9. 9. Input & INSPIRE (EPSIT) Spatial datasets  Identification of the applicable target model  Initial investigation of NZ (Annex III), but too generic for ArcFUEL purposes  Current investigation of LC (Annex II) Metadata Network services  View services (WMS/WCS)  Discovery services (CSW)?Markos Bonazountas, EPSILON Greece, T:+30-210-6898615, M:+30-694-4307576 bonazountas@epsilon.gr 9
  10. 10. FUELMAP (output and intermediate steps) downscaled from 52 to 20 (e.g., correlations, merging of types, new types). Classification with experience, use of classification rules, use of the new EEA report. First draft Booklet presenting Fuel Types characteristics. Database for 20 fuel types. "20" is indicative for communication at this stage. It can e.g. be 18 or 17. Reference year 2003 of FUELMAP. Basically reclassification of FUELMAP to “20” types; thus access to FUELMAP.Markos Bonazountas, EPSILON Greece, T:+30-210-6898615, M:+30-694-4307576 bonazountas@epsilon.gr 10
  11. 11. 20 fuel types (Algo+ADAI) Dry regions Moist regions1. Evergreen Conifers 1. Evergreen Conifers2. Evergreen Broadleaved 2. Evergreen Broadleaved3. Deciduous Broadleaved 3. Deciduous Conifers4. Mixed forests 4. Mixed forests5. Tall shrubs 5. Deciduous Broadleaved6. Low shrubs 6. Tall shrubs7. Phrygana (sub-shrubs) 7. Low shrubs8. Grass 8. Phrygana (sub-shrubs) 9. Grass 18. Riparian vegetation 19. Peat bogs 20. Agroforestry areas Markos Bonazountas, EPSILON Greece, T:+30-210-6898615, M:+30-694-4307576 bonazountas@epsilon.gr 11
  12. 12. 1st Level Fuel-Types Map Use of new 20 fuel types + CORINE + Ecoregions + F/NF db +… Not only use of the 52 output map, but also use of intermediary steps & procedures of FUELMAP. Apply GIS “rules” (e.g., h>200m ….), correlation to Booklet ❷ Downscaling/reclassification of FUELMAP to 50X50|20|2003 JRC can do it; RTD? (INSPIRE,.., rules) Thus we need the JRC coop Production of the 1st basemapMarkos Bonazountas, EPSILON Greece, T:+30-210-6898615, M:+30-694-4307576 bonazountas@epsilon.gr 12
  13. 13. Scope is to: (i) better (refined) mapping results by considering vegetation density, and (ii) get better classification of fuel types (e.g., tall vs. low vegetation & dense vs. non-dense vegetation). Target is: (i) better fuel-types parameterization, (ii) enhancement documentation of fuel types (booklet), (ii) Assistance to validation process. Aim: to use better fuels info for “ff propagation” (modeling) and not for vegetation info per se. Use of LANDSAT (30X30m no cost) or Spot if offered to us. Past example Hellenic Fire Brigade (Chalkidiki, GR) RTD effort involves; AUTH (Ioannis), better accuracy than CORINE Added value to FUELMAP work & workflow with INSPIRE,…Markos Bonazountas, EPSILON Greece, T:+30-210-6898615, M:+30-694-4307576 bonazountas@epsilon.gr 13
  14. 14. Density map (AUTH) Stratification based on delineated ArcFUEL types Calculation of various VIs (NDVI, PVI, SAVI etc) using LANDSAT or SPOT data Grouping of pixels with similar DN values Selection of training regions based on datasets resulted from previous AUTh work (e.g. field surveys) Identification of thresholds per strata based on forest expertise Three classes of vegetation density Estimation of density for each cell of the ArcFUEL Inspire Grid (50 x 50)Markos Bonazountas, EPSILON Greece, T:+30-210-6898615, M:+30-694-4307576 bonazountas@epsilon.gr 14
  15. 15. 2nd level 20-FTM Correlation of ❸+❹ to new product [B] Confirmation of “final fuel map” (e.g., type of forest) to a “quasi static” map (20 fuel types) First level Life+ deliverable; added value to past work & R&D ❹ This is the “best possible” 50X50|20|2003 map, producible e.g., every 5 yrs (JRC+) Easy updates; “standard” product. The production of the “dynamics” follow.Markos Bonazountas, EPSILON Greece, T:+30-210-6898615, M:+30-694-4307576 bonazountas@epsilon.gr 15
  16. 16. Phase II: ArcFUELMarkos Bonazountas, EPSILON Greece, T:+30-210-6898615, M:+30-694-4307576 bonazountas@epsilon.gr 16
  17. 17. 3rd Level “23” FTM “Dynamic” level (annual; WUI, PL, BA) based on data of 2003~2012, based on the “quasi-static” New fuel types via f([A]+[B]+❹+❺) New fuel types & characteristics derivation =f(2003) > 2012 and every year after (2012+) Methodology = f(GIS) + R&D Rules + the 3 new have “characteristics” like the 20 fuels via  Processing and data of 2012 New Map 50X50|23|2012+ (annual dynamic) New fuels parameterization needed(next step) Advantage: Annual state-of-state service with annual dynamics & JRC dynamics (2003+).Markos Bonazountas, EPSILON Greece, T:+30-210-6898615, M:+30-694-4307576 bonazountas@epsilon.gr 17
  18. 18. 23 FT booklet 23 fuel types parameterization for modeling (e.g., ArcFUEL, FARSITE) Production of database & booklet with fotos & parameters, eg. kJ/km2 Verification, validation, etc testing in each country of applications (pilot test areas) Final tuning & delivery: Booklet with 23 types & their parameters France is missing to cover entire EU- Mediterranean (via dissemination/JRC) Correlation to FUELMAP possibleMarkos Bonazountas, EPSILON Greece, T:+30-210-6898615, M:+30-694-4307576 bonazountas@epsilon.gr 18
  19. 19. ArcFUEL Map/pilots 4 Pilot applications & validation: 1GR, 1IT, 1ES, 1PT) Final pilot-areas map: 50x50|23|2012 Ready for full scale production of:  100% Greece  100% Portugal  2 Regions in Italy (Calabria, Sardinia)  2 Regions in Spain (Andalusia: Cordoba, Malaga) ArcFUEL webGIS/ArcGIS-ESRI delivery:  Database, maps, booklet, webservice  Start of real dissemination processMarkos Bonazountas, EPSILON Greece, T:+30-210-6898615, M:+30-694-4307576 bonazountas@epsilon.gr 19
  20. 20. Dissemination/Bus.modelMarkos Bonazountas, EPSILON Greece, T:+30-210-6898615, M:+30-694-4307576 bonazountas@epsilon.gr 20
  21. 21. Summary issues A Life+ contractual technical approach adjustment is rational only under a JRC collaboration/support. FUELMAP added value and dynamic ArcFUEL workflow production is linked to a JRC endorsement. User Requirements: Web-Questionnaire sent in November 2011 JRC benefit (in our view) receipt of ArcFUEL for in-house use, etc. ArcFUEL Consortium benefit (in our view) dynamics of updating & service. ArcFUEL schedule: M9 (30.6.12), M12 (30.9.12), M27 (30.12.13).Markos Bonazountas, EPSILON Greece, T:+30-210-6898615, M:+30-694-4307576 bonazountas@epsilon.gr 21
  22. 22. Other & Closure In case of coop, JRC to join ArcFUEL at formal Life+ prologue. This was a presentation made by an ArcFUEL concerted proposal. EPSILON has practice to conclude success story EC RTD projects and expects a similar ArcFUEL delivery. Webservice via Agreement next to all applicable Life+ obligations. Our appreciation for today.Markos Bonazountas, EPSILON Greece, T:+30-210-6898615, M:+30-694-4307576 bonazountas@epsilon.gr 22
