31 Million Acres, 800,000 Houses - 1 App!
Track: Wildland Fire Management
Authors: Dave Shew
The State of California inspects houses in the wildlands and is transitioning from paper forms to the Collector App to capture 250,000 annual defensible space inspections across 31 million acres of land. Collector enables non-GIS personnel to collect and analyze property and structural data that is critical to the mission of preserving life and property. Beta testing with Collector shows that defensible space inspections and building codes increase the survivability of structures from wildfire.
