The SE FireMap is a new fire mapping system for the Southeastern United States. Developed with funding provided by the USDA NRCS, SE FireMap uses a remote sensing based approach to track both prescribed fire and wildfire activity on public and private lands across the range of the longleaf pine. SE FireMap is being developed as a critical decision support tool to maximize the effectiveness of fire management practices across boundaries, ecosystems, and jurisdictions. This webinar will introduce the SE FireMap, describe the source of the fire data, and explore the current opportunities to use the data. Following the presentations there will be time for audience Q/A with the speakers.

Presenters:

  • Bridgett Costanzo, Working Lands for Wildlife Coordinator-Eastern US, USDA-NRCS
  • Joe Noble, Geospatial Program Director, Tall Timbers Research Station and Land Conservancy
  • Lucas Furman, SE FireMap Technical Oversight Team Lead, The Longleaf Alliance
