The first attempt to map bushfires remotely sensed was made in 1906 by George R. Lawrence that took aerial pictures of San Francisco after the earthquake and fires using around 10 large kites that lifted a 22kg camera to a height of approximately 600 m. Since then Technology for fire management is advancing so quickly that today we have access to a vast array of spatial data. Consequently, the question is no longer �can we predict or observe fires�, but rather how can these vast array of spatial data sources we have access be used to inform different phases of fire management? This poster will highlight technological advances made over the last century and how these advances have allowed me to get real-time information on fire danger rating and impacts that can be used in the day to day fire operations.
