The threat of a forest fire disaster increases around the globe as the human footprint continues to encroach on natural areas and climate change effects increase the potential of extreme weather. It is essential that the tools to educate, prepare, monitor, react, and fight natural fire disasters are available to emergency managers and responders and reduce the overall disaster effects. In the context of the I-REACT project, such a big crisis data system is being developed and is based on the integration of information from different sources, automated data processing chains and decision support systems. This paper presents the wildfire monitoring for emergency management system for those involved and affected by wildfire disasters developed for European forest fire disasters.
