Wildland Information to Intelligence: Harnessing the Vast Data Stream

Friday, April 28
This class will expose the attendees to the volume of data that is available at our fingertips and accessed in a split second related to the wildland fire. Attendees will be introduced to a system of harvesting data, applying context and filters to convert the information to intelligence that is actionable. Once converted to intelligence, the attendees will be exposed to methods of how to incorporate that intelligence into their decision making and crew briefings for safer operations and decisions in the wildland fire environment.
