NIFC Enterprise Geospatial Portal Suite and ANF Pre-Attack Platform
DSoft Technology supports the National Interagency Fire Center (NIFC) with project management, design, development, programming and system administration of the Enterprise Geospatial Portal (EGP), a suite of web-based applications for coordinating wildland fire fighting efforts at the national level.
The custom-built FLIGHT module within EGP simplifies the otherwise complex coordination and cost capture of federal and contract airborne firefighting resources. FLIGHT facilitates a life cycle resource data entry capability by field managers, real time information query by stakeholders, and long term warehousing of data for research and analysis.
Lightning Viewer ingests Bureau of Land Management lightning strike data to enable predictive services as well as post-incident fire investigation forensics.
Through the operational use of the app we have been able to rapidly assess protection responsibility and values at risk. Additionally, the app has enabled us to share a common operating picture amongst responders of operational preattack information such as fuel breaks and indirect dozer lines.
