Datasets and models for wildfire detection in PyTorch

PyroNear: early wildfire detection

The increasing adoption of mobile phones have significantly shortened the time required for firefighting agents to be alerted of a starting wildfire. In less dense areas, limiting and minimizing this duration remains critical to preserve forest areas.

PyroNear aims at offering an wildfire early detection system with state-of-the-art performances at minimal deployment costs.

Table of Contents

Getting started


  • Python 3.6 (or more recent)
  • pip


Use pip to install the package from git

pip install git+



Access all PyroNear datasets just like any torchvision.datasets.VisionDataset:

from pyronear.datasets import OpenFire
dataset = OpenFire('./data', download=True)


You are free to use any training script, but some are already provided for reference. In order to use them, install the specific requirements and check script options as follows:

pip install -r references/classification/fastai/requirements.txt
python references/classification/fastai/ --help

You can then run the script with your own arguments:

python references/classification/fastai/ --data-path ./data --lr 3e-3 --epochs 4 --pretrained --deterministic

Please note that most tasks are provided with two training scripts (and their requirements.txt): one using fastai and the other without it.


The full package documentation is available here for detailed specifications. The documentation was built with Sphinx using a theme provided by Read the Docs.
