The SIGRI (Sistema Integrato per la Gestione del Rischio Incendi) pilot project, funded by ASI (the Italian Space Agency), aims at developing an integrated system for the management of the wild fire events. The system provides satellite based products capable of assisting all the phases of the fire contrasting activities: prevision, detection, and damage assessment/recovering. The SIGRI project aims at implementing consolidated methodologies and/or developing innovative tools and methods for the analysis of remote sensing data and the extraction of information useful to the application. This paper concerns the final phase of the SIGRI project: test and validation of algorithms developed. The validation of the generated products is a very important phase through which the products potentiality is assessed and the algorithms can be calibrated. In this paper we will discuss the results of a preliminary validation process.
