Wildfire fighters are finding new GIS solutions in the National Security Showcase at UC.
Esri’s wildfire management expert Tom Patterson showed off a GPS speaker radio that is useful for instantly mapping crew location and efforts.
Bringing it all together, the GPS speaker radio and GIS provide fire situation updates in near real time.
New to the EXPO is WildLandFire.com. They map the nation’s fires while they are happening. Data from Esri’s Premium Image Service, NOAA, NIFC, and on-the-ground firefighters tell the full story of each fire’s location and situational status.
