Reducing fire risk and ensuing damage
As our world gets hotter and dryer due to climate change, the risk of wildfires increases. A delay in response to these fires can be caused to due a lot of factors, which include the distance between the fire station and the fire-incident, inadequate equipment and insufficient personnel. In support of helping to reduce the response time of fire fighters, and thus deaths, injuries, and property loss due to fires.
ISPARK is an interactive system that uses visual analytics for better understanding fire incidents and their attributes. Using this system we can determine ideal locations for fire stations. We can also analyze the causes of fires, existing infrastructure, response times and many other such features related to fire incidents, in a geographical context. This is achieved by using visualizations, which show the GIS mapping of fire stations on a dashboard
