Geospatial Data and Analytics for Pre- and Post-Fire Decision Support
Wildland fire plays an important role in shaping landscapes across the US. As such, land managers are confronted with numerous questions and issues regarding the management of wildland fire on their lands. These issues involve pre-, during- and post-fire stages of wildland fire and require reliable sources of geospatial data to be addressed. Various agencies, including the US Geological Survey, provide a wealth of geospatial data products that are used to support managers in making decisions regarding wildland fire and its impacts. The factors playing into these decisions and the data products developed to address them are the focus of this forum.
