I am trying to complete an analysis that assesses the likelihood of fire.
From literature I have found that fire is most likely in south facing slopes and least likely in North facing.
Datasets I was planning on using are fire events and aspect. I have currently performed aspect analysis (spatial analyst) on DEM and reclassified the values so each of the 9 directions (N, NE, E, SE, S, SW, W, NW, Flat) have a unique value.
I thought I would then be able to convert raster to polygon then select by location the fire events in each direction - however that does not work.
Are there any suggestions of how i could analyse the number of fire events in each aspect.
(Fire events are points, and aspect raster)
