Fires Burnt More than 1,260 Hectares in East Attica

Detailed maps showing the extent of the burnt areas in eastern Attica were released on Monday, by the forest fires monitoring centre at the National Observatory of Athens.
Using a system of Drones/UAV for high resolution spatial analysis, the centre has produced very detailed maps assessing the damage even to individual properties.
These updated maps show that roughly 1260 hectares of land in eastern Attica were burned in last week’s devastating fires. It has also released an updated map with detailed damage estimates using satellite imaging.
The estimate was arrived at by processing the very high-resolution (30 cm) Worldview-3 satellite image taken three days after the event.
The National Observatory noted that it’s centre and the observatory’s services are at the disposal of the state to help in managing the massive disaster.
