AGENSO announces the application firedanger.gr is ready to be used by the public.
This application is an interactive map for assessing the possibility of fire in Greece, and it is provided free of charge at www.firedanger.gr. Using mathematical models for meteorological parameters, such as temperature, precipitation, relative humidity and wind speed, both the risk of ignition and the probability of fire occurrence and spread are calculated. The results are presented on a colored interactive map with five different risk levels: green for low risk, blue for medium risk, yellow for high risk, orange for very high risk and red for alert status.
Thus, the user can see the estimation for five (5) days ahead and in 3-hour intervals, either by searching and selecting their place of interest or by enabling the tracing of their current location.
The application is addressed to regular citizens, as well as local government executives, is also freely accessible from the web application, while soon there will be an application for Android mobile phones.
