Public API and IoT Solution to prevent Forest FiresSummer 2020
Due to the increased drought in recent years, extreme forest fires have become more frequent in the summer months and have become a burden for fire departments and residents. Since a large part of these fires are mainly caused by careless citizens, both my free API and the digital warning signs that were developed in cooperation with a local fire department have the goal to better inform the citizens and thereby prevent potential forest fires. The API obtains the data from official sources, prepares them and makes them available in a user-friendly way and free of charge.
The API has been used
times since its launch in June 2020.
