Geospatial Tools in Wildland Fire Management and Decision Support
The Arizona Department of Forestry and Fire Management (DFFM) utilizes multiple geospatial platforms and web based applications to enhance situational awareness. They also aid in decision support, publish reports, dispatch firefighters, and track resources in the field. There is a public facing web based program for sharing information with the public about community wildfire risk. There are also applications that allow firefighters to gather information prior to and during incidents for enhanced situational awareness in real time. These systems will be discussed and demonstrated in this session.
