Firemap

Firemap is a tool developed by WIFIRE researchers to perform data-driven predictive modeling and analysis of fires that have a high potential for rapid spread, and enables what-if analysis of fire scenarios ahead of the time as well as real-time fire forecasting. It also provides easy access to information on past fires, past and current weather conditions as well as weather forecasts, satellite detections, and information on vegetation and landscapes from a variety of sources. These are all datasets available on different websites that viewers can now see in one place, achieve programmatic access to via web services, and be used for planning fire response and management of natural resources well ahead of time.
