Broyles, George ; Verania, Jason . 2006. Fire Prediction Software for Windows Mobile Devices. 0651 1303. San Dimas, CA: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, San Dimas Technology and Development Center. 5 p.

The goal of this project was to identify or develop software that would give firefighters the ability to predict fire behavior while in the fire environment. Fire behavior can only be observed not modeled on the line. This project would develop an application to run on a handheld device (PDA) for fireline use that will use recorded weather data to predict local fire behavior.

Keywords: fire prediction software, fireline production rates, handheld devices
