Description from Website

The GeoMAC team has produced an internet based mapping application which allows firefighting coordination centers and incident command teams to access online maps of current fire locations and perimeters using standard web browsers such as Netscape Communicator or Microsoft Internet Explorer. Fire perimeter data is updated daily based upon input from incident intelligence sources, GPS data, IR imagery from fixed wing and satellite platforms. The GeoMAC web site allows users in remote locations to manipulate map information displays, zoom in and out to display fire information at various scales and detail, including downloading desired information and printing hard copy for use on the fireline. The fire maps also have relational databases in which the user can display information on individual fires such as name of the fire, current acreage and other fire status information with just the click of a mouse.Blah
