    OVERVIEW

    The SE FireMap 1.0 tool maps all detectable fires across nine states in the Southeastern United States. The map and associated tools aim to improve fire management in urban and rural communities through remote sensing and track both prescribed fire and wildfires throughout portions of Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas — prioritizing coverage of the historic longleaf pine range.

    Funding was provided by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) through an agreement with the U.S. Endowment for Forestry and Communities.

    Introduction to the SE FireMap 1.0 – A New Tool to Map Prescribed Fires and Wildfires is hosted by David Godwin, PhD., Director of the Southern Fire Exchange (SFE).
