As firefighters continue to fight the dangerous Camp Fire in northern California, the Advanced Advanced Imaging and Analysis (ARIA) group in NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, has provided another map demonstrating damage from November 1

6th.

The ARIA team makes its maps by watching when satellite images of the fire place to see the degree of progress between the two pictures. For this guide, you opposed the information for the image with a Cal Fire Office Launch approval.

The map was created using synthetic aperture images from the Copernicus Sentinel-1 satellites operated by the European Space Agency. The guide covers a 48-mile zone with 48 miles (78 by 77 kilometers), illustrated in red to the left. A close-up view of damage to paradise is the right-handed, blank in white. The shading variation from yellow to red gradually shows more remarkable changes in the ground area.

However, maps may be less reliable over vegetered terrain, such as forests, but they can help officials and first respondents identify heavily injured areas and allocate resources
