Concept Plan for a GIS-based Fire Monitoring & Prediction System

  1. 1. Concept Plan For aGIS-based Fire Monitoring & Prediction SystemASEAN Technical Workshop On Development Of The ASEAN Peatland Fire Prediction & Early Warning System 20 March 2012 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia by Chiam Keng Oon ASEAN Specialised Meteorological Centre
  2. 2. 1 •Introduction2 •Concepts3 •Implementation4 •Conclusion
  3. 3. • Importance of peatland management • ASMC recognises that sustainable management of peatlands is important to deal with the threat of peatland fires and transboundary haze pollution• ASEAN Peatland Forests Project (APFP) • ASMC supports the APFP • Offered to provide in kind technical expertise in the area of interpreting satellite imageries and monitoring peatland/hotspots.
  4. 4. • GIS and geospatial data growing in importance • Allow users to examine new types of information in new ways• Leverage on GIS technology • Part of the effort to strengthen the early warning & monitoring capabilities of ASMC
  5. 5. • Rationale to adopt a GIS-based approach to enhance our Fire Monitoring & Prediction System • Consolidate all useful data into a central repository • Analysis data are geospatial in nature • GIS “layering” feature allow for more insight into the situational analysis
  6. 6. • Potential usage of a GIS based system • Observation data in GIS layers can be drawn into the framework to facilitate analysis o Example: overlaying of satellite imagery depicting smoke haze with air quality data on the ground • Able to infer the extent of the smoke haze
  7. 7. • Potential usage of a GIS based system • Forecast products can be overlaid to create a prognosis of the situation o Example: dispersion output indicate likely path the haze will take, other forecasts may indicate general dryness/wetness over the location likely escalation/subduing of the situation
  8. 8. • Potential usage of a GIS based system • Statistical data can also be analysed coherently with current data to identify historical trends o Example: Are the hotspot counts observing a similar trend over the same location over the years?
  9. 9. • To move forward, need to take stock of • What is available and what is lacking o ASMC has information such as hotspot data, satellite imagery o Need to translate information to format suitable for GIS usage  Example: SHP files, GEOTIFF• Require the following specifically for peatland fire analysis • Peatland distribution and depth database o Require geo-referenced peatland data of ASEAN region • Water table information • Land use database
  10. 10. • Other considerations for the system o Ability to export suitable layers to the eventual APFP system o Hardware, software, capacity building etc
  11. 11. • ASMC is concurrently looking at leveraging GIS technologies for fire and haze monitoring• Welcome any feedback/suggestions to the system• Contribute and cooperate to make the APFP a success
