- The suffering from forest fire is dramaticin VietNam and other ASEAN country.
- Determine the cause of the forest fire can help to reduce the disaster, and raising the awareness.
- Remote sensing technique has closely monitored
the fires raging across the forests
- Time series analysis for the trend of land cover change
- Calculate the habitat loss in the fire area.
U Minh Thuong region
Why choosing the SPOT satellite images?
- The High Resolution Visible (HRV) sensors on board the SPOT satellites provide high resolution (20 m in the multispectral mode) images of the fire areas.
- Individual smoke plumes can be observed in the images
- The precise locations of the fires can be determined.
- The types of landcover on fire can also be determined from the spectral and contextual features of the fire areas.
- High frequency for achiving data at the area

2. SPOT taken on 08 Jan 1995
3. SPOT taken on 04 Feb 2002
4. SPOT taken on March 2002
5. SPOT taken on 28 Sept 2002

- The combinationchannels 4,3,2 representation ( SWIR(4), NIR(3), and Red(2) bands in RGB display respectively.
- Colocomposite and land cover classification for 3 images.
- Data Fusion temporal analysis for accounting the change before and after the forest fire.

B. Map of Land cover derived from SPOT image on Feb. 2002
The land cover change from 1988 to March. 2002, before the forest fire
Total area burnt scar in U Minh Thuong is 2954.4 ha = 37.5%
Mainly natural melaleuca forest, takes 32.1% of the area
Table 2. Area of habitat on fire
- The research has calculated the burnt area and support for the governemnt to help the local and restore the forest.
- Multi temporal data fusion technique to define the cause of land cover change and also the potential area of fire, monotoring forest fire to support for the manager.
- Data access for disasater monitoring research can be achived from the Internet
-The government need to apply space technology on forest fire detection, improve the daily real time warning system for forest fire hazard during the dry season.
- Urgent need to cooperate interms of disaster management and reduction
