Mapping and Wildfires

From Western Washington University College of the Environment: "Wildland fire is a serious concern for community members in the wildland-urban interface (WUI), the area outside of urban districts where human development is mixed with wildlands. While defining the WUI in any given area can be a difficult task, a Geographic Information System (GIS—a computer-based mapping and spatial analysis interface), can be an effective tool to analyze, model, determine, and mitigate hazards and risks related to the WUI."
