"BMKG will conduct weather forecasts to analyze its impact on hotspots, its impact on land and forest fires, and the impact on drought and failed harvests," he said.
The detailed data will be synchronized with big data of weather usually used by BMKG to provide weather information services, he said.
The big data will contain complete data to predict the location and time the hotspots occur and their intensity, he said.
Through the data, the machine will study and show how large is the potential of forest and land fires, he said.
The prediction will also strengthen mitigation efforts through SMART WMT in the areas prone to drought and land and forest fires, he said.
"The WMT will mitigate (the impact of drought) so we can prevent failed harvest, land and forest fires and other hydrometeorological disasters," he said.
The SMART WMT will produce a decision support system which makes the operation of WMT more credible," he said.
