Superseded: use the CPS Wildfire Management Tool instead
Note: This software has been superseded by the CPS Wildfire Management Tool. The project homepage will take you to the new software
The Campbell Prediction System (CPS) is an Emergency Management Expert System for predicting the fire behavior of a wildland fire (wildfire). CPS is used to adjust tactics & strategies to ensure the safety of firefighters and the effective use of resources
- 3D Terrain Viewer
- Rothermel fire spread equations
- Graphical output of fire environment and fire behavior
As the author of this software, I'll be first to give it a thumbs up. Version 1.0 is the first of several iterations. It establishes the foundation for other releases. It's goal was to demonstrate the CPS "alignment of forces" concept alongside BEHAVE fire spread calculations. Objectives included making fire behavior calculations easy and dynamic, allowing you to explore and visualize the effects that the fire's environment has on the fire's behavior. It ready to be used as a learning tool. Enjoy.
