Description: The Wildland Fire Decision Support System (WFDSS) web-based application leverages geospatial data to inform strategic decisions on wildland fires. A specialized data team, working within the Wildland Fire Management Research Development and Application group (WFM RD&A), assembles authoritative national-level data sets defining values to be protected. The use of such high-quality trusted data ensures that critical resources, infrastructure and firefighter risk exposure are considered in both the planning and implementation phases of incident management (Figure 3 and Table 1).
