Natural hazards, such as fires and floods, are a fact of life. Swift responses and proactive planning can mitigate the severity of a disaster and lessen the potential for cascading impacts. Fire planners need to be able to quickly identify areas of high risk and vulnerability and prioritize resources for maximum impact. This is where innovative technology to conduct analyses, such as burn severity, terrain ruggedness, and object detection using deep learning, can help. Results display the whole picture, along with the context of location, To help us make more informed decisions. We learn about these analyses in ArcGIS, along with how they can drive informed decisions and how results can be rapidly shared with stakeholders and citizens.
