GeoMAC Wildfire Mapping
Entry ID: GeoMAC_Wildfire

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The Geospatial Multi-Agency Coordination Group (Geo-MAC), is an internet-based
mapping tool originally designed for fire managers to access online maps of
current fire locations in the United States. Using a standard web browser,
users can download fire information to pinpoint affected fire areas.

In order to give fire managers and users near real-time information, fire
perimenter data is updated daily based upon incident intelligence sources, GPS
data, and infrared imagery.

The GeoMAC website, using ArcIMS technology, allows users in remote locations
to manipulate map information displays, zoom in and out of regions to display
fire information at various scales and detail. Users can also download desired
information and print hard copies for personal use.
