In offered paper experience of application of multispectral space images ASTER (Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflector Radiometer) for revealing landscape and geological features of Uronai ore unit (East Transbaikalia) is considered. This territory is perspective on tungsten - molybdenum mineralization. For the decision of geological and hydrogeological problems day time and night ASTER images have been used. By results of research are created geoinformation models of hydrogeochemical conditions and ore controlling factors are created.
In 1998 it has been organized the service which uses remote sensing data (RSD) processing techniques for monitoring and prediction of the fire situation on the basis of the West-Siberian Regional Centre of Reception and Data processing (WS RCRDP), at the participation of the Novosibirsk Regional Center of Geoinformation Technologies (NRCGIT SB RAS). Accuracy of referencing for the Novosibirsk region is up to 1 pixel (satellite NOAA-14, sensor AVHRR, space resolution is 1 km). Thin plate spline is used for received NOAA images georeference correction. Currently the data of the MODIS sensor from the Terra satellite is accessible. A hot spot coordinates determination accuracy on images received after the geometrical correction is less than one pixel (up to 1 km) and in the case of higher resolution channels utilization is less than one quarter of the pixel (up to 250m). A whole system of the forest fires monitoring consists of two independent parts: “component of RSD processing” and “GIS-component.” The “component of RSD processing” performs: data reprocessing (calibration, image georeferencing) and hotspots detection. The “GIS-component” is intended for secondary data processing. The input data is analyzed by the overlay analysis of the fire seats geometry. Formation of reports and processing results archiving are also performed. End users derive data not in physical coordinates “latitude-longitude,” but in their standard forest management system nomenclature -- "Forestry - forest area - wood block.” This lightens utilization of the derived result of the processing by forest-guards. It is also planned to develop the module which performs an estimation of the damage, inflicted by forest fires.
