Abstract: Wildfire events are increasingly threatening our lands, cities, and lives. To contrast this phenomenon and to limit its damages, governments around the globe are trying to find proper counter-measures, identifying prevention and monitoring as two key factors to reduce wildfires impact worldwide. In this work, we propose two deep convolutional neural networks to automatically detect and delineate burned areas from satellite acquisitions, assessing their performances at scale using validated maps of burned areas of historical wildfires. We demonstrate that the proposed networks substantially improve the burned area delineation accuracy over conventional methods.
