Wildfire Resource Mapping

The project involves the development of a GIS mapping system that can be downloaded onto any PC for free and used in the field for real-time wildfire, initial attack strategy and sustained suppression. The system enables the visualization of information such as access routes and water features, or any other existing information.

Databases may be developed, maintained, updated and shared easily and instantly, eliminating spatial and temporal barriers to the information sharing process and allowing for the customization of maps to suit the requirements of the end user.
