Data Center Description
The Fire Research And Management Exchange System or FRAMES is a systematic method of exchanging information and transferring technology between wildland fire researchers, managers, and other stakeholders. In partnership with the US Geological Surveys National Biological Information Infrastructure (NBII) Program, FRAMES is implementing web-based technologies that can help bridge the gap between science and management. The goal is to make wildland fire data, metadata, tools, and other information resources easy to find, access, distribute, compare, and use. In collaboration, the wildland fire research and management communities can use these technologies to help eliminate redundancy, reduce costs, and promote increased productivity and efficiency.
