The Public Viewer is a web-mapping application designed to let users zoom to a place of interest, explore map themes and identify wildfire risk for a specific location on the map. The featured tool in this application is called “What’s Your Risk?”. It allows users to identify specific risk levels within a half-mile radius of a home, or any other point of interest on the map. The application is available to all site visitors and site registration is not required.
The Professional Viewer is a web mapping application designed to support community wildfire protection planning needs of government officials, fire planners and hazard mitigation planners. The application contains advanced capabilities and additional map themes compared to the Public Viewer. The key features of the application include the capability to define a project area, generate a detailed risk summary report, generate quick maps, and export and download the wildfire risk GIS data. Access to the Professional Viewer requires a value user account from SGSF. Registration to the site is required.
The Communities-at-Risk Editor is a web mapping application designed to support state agency planners in defining and maintaining community boundaries for communities-at-risk to wildfire. The application provides access to an updated map of Wildland Urban Interface with interactive tools to edit community boundaries. The key features of the application include the capability to edit community boundaries, name rural communities, and derive risk ratings for the communities using the SWRA data. This application provides a consistent, centralized approach for maintaining and reporting on Communities-at-Risk for the entire South. Access to the CARE application requires a value user account from SGSF and is limited to those state agency staff responsible for administering communities-at-risk. Registration to the site is required.
