A collection of NetBeans-based projects for emergency management including an extensible geomatics application framework (emxsys) featuring 3D virtual earth and GIS capabilities built with the NASA World Wind SDK, JFreeChart, Flamingo RibbonBar, and VisAD. This repository is also the home of the CPS

The Wildfire Management Tool (WMT) is a software application based on the Campbell Prediction System (CPS) that estimates the potential behavior of a wildland fire so that firefighting strategies can ensure the safety and effectiveness of firefighters.
WMT is a visualization tool for wildland
... [More] fire behavior students, instructors and tacticians. The purpose of this tool is to provide an analysis of the potential fire behavior, and to visualize the areas of risk and/or opportunity. The project is an effort to enhance the training of wildland firefighters and fire behavior analysts, and to provide useful fire behavior estimates on active wildland fires and analyses of historical fires.
WMT uses the Terramenta project which provides the NASA WorldWind virtual globe. [Less]
The Wildfire Management Tool Web Edition (WMTweb) is a web application and REST server that work together to display the potential behavior of a wildfire in your web browser on your mobile device or desktop computer.
WMTweb is the NASA World Wind Europa Challenge 2015 First Place award winner in the professional entry category!
