Preventing and fighting wildfires in the forests and rural areas of Epirus and Apulia has become increasingly demanding due to climate change and socioeconomic factors, i.e., the economic crisis, lack of fuel management, ageing population, and rural area abandonment. OFIDIA2 (Operational FIre Danger preventIon plAtform 2), funded by the Interreg Greece-Italy 2014-2020 Programme, proposed a pragmatic approach to improve the operational capacity of the stakeholders to detect and fight forest wildfires. A data analytics system was designed and implemented within the project to manage, transform, and extract knowledge from heterogenous data sources, through forecasting models such as weather, fire danger, and fire behaviour models and near-real-time data coming from different sources.
