GIS Helps Multiple Agencies Respond to Southern California Fires

Some of the emergency applications include 2D and 3D mapping of fire perimeters and fire progression, identifying critical facilities and infrastructure.


The map includes a collection of results that can be clicked to navigate to each fire area. Clicking the result pushpin will open a direct connection to the InciWeb site (if an entry is available) for the latest fire status, news, maps, and other information.
