Assessing Fire Risk in Forest Ranges of Guntur District; Andhra Pradesh: Using Integrated Remote Sensing and GIS

B. Veeraanarayanaa, Srinivas K. Ravi Kumar

Guntur district in Andhra Pradesh falls under one of the fire risk zones; which cover the forest ranges of Sattenapalli; Vinukonda; Macharla; Repalle; Wild-life Krishna and Sagar. Especially forest fire in these areas has laid stress on the fragile forest eco-system due to human activities and natural causes; which reflects in forest degradation. For better management of natural resources it is very important to understand the natural set up of the region along with factors governing them. Therefore; an attempt has been made to assess & map the potential fire occurrences in the region; which are important for forest management planning; using Remote Sensing & GIS technologies. In the present study Remote Sensing data (LISS-III) were used for assessing & mapping various thematic maps. The Potential fire occurrence maps were generated from the developed risk index model; which is an integrated function of various landscape parameters (like slope; aspect; vegetation types; canopy density; roads and villages) derived from the landscape mapping using GIS. This model gives various levels of risk concerned within the forest blocks of study area; and the statistics estimated would help to take up preventive measures and future predictions.
