A Collection of Geospatial Technological Approaches for Wildland and 
Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) Fire Events

The report was created to help address the following problem stated in the executive Summary: 

“While the current availability of geospatial related data and systems is abundant and richly diverse, it is too often unavailable to the practitioners who most need it. Traditional causes for this include lack of appropriate level and relevance of guidance for practitioners, training for analysts, and the confusion caused by the abundance of overlapping options; funding to build capacity to use these resources, and standards to guide efficient implementation.”

Cover of Geospatial Technological Approaches for Wildland and WUI Fire Events

This compilation from the Fire Protection Research Foundation offers summaries of the latest geospatial technological approaches. It clarifies the application and utility of over 30 geospatial techniques and data for wildland and WUI fire events. 

Intended to improve understanding and enhance decision-making for fire preparedness, mitigation, and rehabilitation in the wildland and WUI, it focuses on Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Remote Sensing (RS), and Global Positioning System (GPS) technologies. The information was compiled by author Minchao Yin.
