Description:
The “Firewise Community Assessment with JavaMaps” project provides a unique, hands-on opportunity for students to use Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technology to assess the wildfire risk of their community and to educate their community on steps that can be taken to reduce that risk. The Summer 2010 Firewise Teacher Training includes content instruction, technology training in GIS and GPS and field trips to the Minnesota Interagency Fire Center and Forest History Center.
