Project Name: Wildland Fire Assessment System Interactive Map
Abstract: The WFAS Interactive Map is a prototype project by the Fire Behavior Research and Fire Modeling Institute work units at the Missoula Fire Sciences Lab to develop the methods necessary for delivering nationwide observed and 24-hour forecast fire danger maps to the public through a compact web mapping program. The new interface complements the existing static national maps and will provide more system flexibility by allowing users to define their own area of interest, link to weather station data in a tabular format, and perform searches for map features. The prototype for the interactive map can be accessed at: http://www.wfas.net/maps/.
