hP - HotPin - FireWhat is pleased to offer sourced content from WildlandFire.com and its growing community of nearly 13,000 registered members as a consumable web service for use in common GIS and web environments. The HotPin Data FeedTM API provides the mechanism for organizations to access, retrieve, integrate, and use fire information to enhance business intelligence, protect assets, and improve public safety.

The HotPin Early ReporterTM delivers essential fire information, as soon as a fire is reported. Once confirmed, the HotPin Initial AttackTM information is expanded to include detailed incident information from WildlandFire.com. Plans with the GeoEnrichment feature include additional information about the surrounding area to provide additional context. All data feeds are provided as a consumable service for use in common GIS and web applications.

FIREWHAT DATA FEATURES

  • Available 4-12 hours in advance of any other public data feed
  • Expertly sourced, analyzed and interpreted
  • Available via REST endpoint
  • Data feeds from public sources (such as MODIS and GeoMAC) are updated once or twice a day, while our data is reported as it happens in near real-time
  • Enhanced by granular, descriptive characteristics of the fire that cannot be found from any other source.  

 
  • Maps & iA-G  - Initial Attack with GeoEnrichment added into maps brings a new level of defensive emergency response. iA-G adds critical information crucial to responders that assist with public infrastructure, and emergency planning.

 
  • FireWhat creates white-labeled apps that harness the power of our data and that are tailored to your specific need. We also consume our own data with the Wildland Fire Map Application, first of many to our ESRI suite of apps. Wildland Fire Map offers up-to-date fire information that is pulled from our Public Information App and Hotpin data feed.

FireWhat Resource Asset Tracking/Mobile GIS Lab

FireWhat Resource Asset Tracking/Mobile GIS Lab

FireWhat is excited to add three GIS Mobile Mapping Labs to its arsenal of available GIS tools. This will bring 4 total units on board in the 2016 Fire Season. These GIS Mobile Labs were designed to introduce the “Next Generation of Emergency Incident Mapping”, through the integration of traditional paper-based mapping and ArcGIS Online (WebGIS).

Through a partnership with HP Enterprise and HP Inc, FireWhat's Mobile Labs are some of the most state of the art GIS labs that exist. In the Fall of 2015, FireWhat partnered with HP to outfit all of our Mobile GIS Labs with enterprise HP Hardware, Servers, Laptops, and Printers. This new outfitting of equipment includes the new HP ZBook 15" laptop workstation, HP Enterprise Servers, and HP T3500 Large Format Printers. Each of our Mobile Labs are also equipped with HP Networking incorporated with Cisco Systems Meraki Wireless Mesh Networking devices. This enables FireWhat to create incident specific IntraNets to share GeoSpatial Data, Live Tracking of Resources, and Real Time dissemination of information to all incident responders. 

Our GIS Mobile Labs incorporate cutting edge technology and an expansive layout to ensure function and usability. With fully networked workstations, dual plotters and top of the line data processing computers, these units will meet and exceed all organizational requirements. Two of the GIS Mobile Labs are built for dual use, the first use being GIS and Unmanned Aerial Vehicle observation (as presented at the 2015 Tepee Springs Wildfire in McCall, ID), and the second use being onsite training and educational purposes. The GIS Mobile Labs are able to set up for short/long term field GIS uses, or for demonstration purposes and are completely self-sufficient. FireWhat provides National Wildfire Coordinating Group (NWCG) fully qualified GISS Personnel to respond to emergency incidents as well.

FireWhat Type I GIS Mobile Labs include:

Equipped with HP zBook G2 15" Mobile Workstations and 48 TB HP File Sharing Servers, the FireWhat Mobile Labs are the most state of the art GIS Labs on the market!

GIS Mapping

The Wildland Fire Hot Pin (HP)© is a tool designed by FireWhat, Inc. to be used in conjunction with spatial information from Wildlandfire.com. When a HP is dropped on a map, information from the map self-populates the HP GeoDatabase. A HP can be dropped two different ways. The first way to engage a HP is to be in the field and use the Esri Collector App on a mobile device. The HP can be dropped from any location and your geographic information will be preserved in the GeoDatabase. HP information can be monitored using the FireWhat Resource and Asset Tracking system (RATs). Specific widgets can be added for specific resource and asset tracking needs.

FireWhat launched its adaptation of the ArcGIS Online mapping platform in the Summer of 2013. The mapping platform provides instant access to secure organizational mapping. The map-enriched polygons of ANY natural disaster create a perimeter to determine the specific demographic of the affected population (see bar chart above) along with the percentage of household ownership (see pie chart). The HP is designed to absorb ANY spatial information that is available on the base map associated with your vector data. Imagine implementing this tool in your industry!
