Аннотация: Forest fire is one of the serious threats to the population and infrastructure of Irkutsk Oblast because its territory is heavily forested. This paper discusses the main stages of solving the problem of forecasting the risk of forest fires via a case-based approach, including data preprocessing, formation of a case model, and creation of a prototype of a case-based expert system. The main contributions of the paper are the following: a case model that provides a compact representation of information about weather conditions, vegetation type, and infrastructure of the region in relation to the possible risk of a wildfire; a case-base containing information about wildfires in Irkutsk Oblast for the period from 2017 to 2020; and a methodology for creating prototypes of case bases providing the transformation of decision tables of a special type. The approbation of the approach was carried out for separate forest districts, namely Bodaibinsk and Kazachinsk-Lena. The accuracy score was used for the evaluation of the results of forecasting the risk of wildfires. The average score value reached 0.51. The evaluation results revealed that application of the case-based approach can be considered as the initial stage for deeper investigations with the use of different methods (data mining, neural networks) for more accurate forecasting.
