Geospatial Fire Behavior Modeling App to Manage Wildfire Risk Online
Track: Wildland Fire Management
Authors: Kenyatta Jackson
Modeling fire behavior is essential in wildfire risk analysis. The ArcMap extension ArcFuels facilitates this, but requires ArcMap, several extensions, behavior models and large datasets locally. An online version, the focus of this presentation, was built using ArcGIS JS API 4.0, ASP.Net MVC, Dojo, HTML5 and ArcGIS Server to provide a more available interface. Fire Behavior models are run using a standard web browser allowing users to analyze output data of potential fuel management scenarios.
