Thank you for mentioning us, we wish great success for this project.
Arbonaut and the FMI Beta started a new forest fire management-related project — MAST 2, which originates from our previously completed MAST project. This time around, the goal is to improve the Prometheus fire simulations and user interfaces of the models predicting forest fires in Finnish conditions.
We are now developing a feature that will consider the effects of firefighting measures taken by a fire crew and any terrain changes in fire spread forecast. By having such control measures, the upgraded prediction model will become invaluable in firefighting strategy planning and training.
The project is funded by Palosuojelurahasto.
