What is iForestFire
- iForestFire is intelligent and integrated video based monitoring system for early detection of forest fires. Forest fires are detected in incipient stage using advanced image processing and image analyses methods.Intelligent fire recognition algorithms analyze images automatically, trying to find visual signs of forest fire, particularly forest fire smoke during the day and forest fire flames during the night. If something suspicious is found, prealarm is generated and appropriate image parts are visibly marked. The operator inspects suspicious image parts and decides is it really the forest fire or not.
- The catastrophic fire season in the year of 2003. motivated researchers at University of Split to initiate research connected to early detection of forest fires based on images captured by video cameras in the visible spectra. After two years of research supported by Ministry of science, education and sport of Republic Croatia through grants for technological project and Split and Dalmatia County, advance and innovative forest fire video detection and early warning system was developed and experimentally tested during 2005 and 2006 fire seasons. The system was named iForestFire - Intelligent Forest Fire Monitoring System.
- iForestFire is Web Information System (WIS) and the only user interface is standard Web browser. The system is based on field units and a central processing unit. The field unit includes the day & night, pan/tilt/zoom controlled IP based video camera and a IP based mini meteorological station connected by wired or wireless LAN to a central processing unit where all analysis, calculation, presentation, image and data archiving is done.
