Abstract

The aim of this study is to model the wild fire behaviour in the Eparchy of Pylias (Southwest-Messinia, Greece), and more specific to acquire more knowledge about the wild fires control problem as it concerns the fire frequency and the possibility of fire spreading. A hazard model is set up based upon a combination of remote sensing techniques and a GIS. A multi source data is used, comprising cartographic documents, meteorological data, satellite imagery and statistical information about the fire history of the region (1978-1996). A thematic study is performed for each of the controlling factors and a hazard map for fire occurrence is obtained
