In recent years, California has been hit by devastating wildfires that have resulted in extensive loss to life and property. Drones have provided a powerful new tool for public safety teams to rapidly visualize affected areas and disseminate that information quickly to the agencies involved, as well as the public. This session will provide a deep-dive into the data analytics perspective behind the multi-agency drone response in the aftermath of the deadly Camp Fire in 2018. It will also highlight the opportunities for aerial mapping moving forward in fuels management and wildfire prevention.
