We are deadly serious about data

Wildfires are deadly. Human life, homes, businesses and critical infrastructure are under threat. SkyForest has developed 6 cross Canada data layers that combine to create the most comprehensive and detailed fire risk map in Canada.

Distance to Hazardous Fuel

The distance to hazardous fuel refers to the straight-line distance in meters to locations with a medium or high fuel hazard.

Exposure

Exposure quantifies the potential for an asset situated at a point of interest (POI) to be affected by hazards generated by wildfires, including flames, radiant heat, and embers. It is determined by the fuel hazard near the POI and takes into account the surrounding slopes and their respective azimuths.

Fuel Hazard

Fuel hazard denotes the level of wildfire risk attributed to the presence of specific forest and non-forest fuel types. This hazard is linked to the potential intensity of a fire and its rate of spread upon ignition. Ratings for fuel hazard are categorized as: nil, low, medium, and high.

Fuel Type

Fuel types categorize forests and other combustible land cover types based on the specific type of wildfire fuel present in a given location. This classification is determined by factors such as vegetation type (e.g., grassland or forest), composition (e.g., percentage of conifer trees), and vegetation structure (e.g., height of the forest). FRMG utilizes the classification system outlined in the Wildland-Urban Interface guide.

Percent Softwood Basal Area

The PCBA (Percent Conifer Basal Area) represents the proportion of coniferous trees in a forest canopy. This is determined by considering both the species type and the size of the tree, indicated by its basal area – the area of the trunk’s horizontal cross-section.

The SKYFOREST Difference

Our 20M resolution provides the ability to make accurate and informed decisions on wildfire threat. Because our data is Canada-wide you’ll get consistent and measurable results whether you’re looking at data in British Columbia, New Brunswick or Quebec.
