Oregon Wildfires: A Quick Application
In 2020, wildfires raged across much of the Western United States, including Oregon. As part of Vexcel’s disaster response program, imagery was collected over several of the impacted communities. Using CIR imagery, emergency managers could easily gauge the level of destruction. Live trees and grass are colored red while dead, burned areas are black and gray tones. In just seconds, they could quickly see damaged areas and start plans for rebuilding the impacted community.
