Representatives from USDA-NRCS, Tall Timbers Research, and USGS will lead the webinar.

Expanding & Updating the SE FireMap

When: Tuesday, September 20th, 2022

At: 2 PM US/Eastern

Where: On Zoom - Register here

Webinar Description:

The SE FireMap is a fire mapping system that uses remote sensing to track prescribed fire and wildfire activity on public and private lands throughout the southeastern United States. The SE FireMap v1.0 was released in early 2021, and an expanded, fully operational SE FireMap v2.0 aims to be released by Spring 2025. The SE FireMap v2.0 will provide a decision-support system with annually updated information to resource managers to support increasing the effectiveness of fire planning and conservation practice delivery across boundaries, ecosystems, and jurisdictions. In time the SE FireMap will be expanded to include additional regions.

This webinar will demonstrate the prototype version of the SE FireMap, discuss the development of v2.0, and outline ways users can provide input on product development. There will be time for Q&A following brief presentations. The SE FireMap was developed with funding from USDA-NRCS. 

Presenters:

  • Bridgett Costanzo, Working Lands for Wildlife Coordinator-Eastern US, USDA-NRCS
  • Joe Noble, Geospatial Program Director, Tall Timbers Research
  • Eli Simonson, Remote Sensing Analyst, Tall Timbers Research
  • Holly Nowell, Project Research Scientist, Tall Timbers Research
