Prepare, Respond, Renew: GIS for Wildland Fire

By Anthony Schultz, Matt Ball, and Matt Artz

Prepare, Respond, Renew: GIS for Wildland Fire is a collection of real-life stories about wildland fire agencies that have successfully used GIS to apply the geographic approach to resilience strategies. The threat from wildfire has increased due to patterns of housing development and climate change. GIS helps model how wildfires spread depending on weather, geologic features, and human development. Through predictive analytics and mapping technologies, preemptive action can be taken to mitigate loss, respond quickly, and recover from wildfire. This book includes a section that provides ideas, strategies, tools, and actions to help jump-start the use of GIS for wildland fire management.
