Burn severity is an important role for rehabilitation of burned forest area. This factor led to the pilot study to determine if high resolution IKONOS images could be used to classify and delinenate the bum severity over burned areas of Samchock Fire and Cheongyang-Yesan Fire. The results of this study can be summarized as follows: 1. The modified Normalized Bum Ratio (NBR) for IKONOS imagery can be evaluated using burn severity mapping. 2. IKONOS-derived NBR imagery could provide fire scar and detail mapping of burned areas at Samchock fire and Cheongyang-Yesan Burns.
