Burnt land mapping at local scale
This chapter outlines some of the aspects of the contribution of satellite remote sensing, especially when high spatial resolution data are involved, to burnt land studies. Some theoretical aspects of the meaning of scale and how it influences these studies are also provided. A brief description of the particular character of the Mediterranean landscape is given, because it constitutes the geographical domain to which this book refers. Finally, a description of some of the techniques that have been developed and used in burnt land studies (mainly from the Megafires project) is provided.
