What is this repository for?

Quick summary

This is a NetBeans 8.0 mavenized module suite used to build the Wildfire Management Tool (WMT).

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. 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. This 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.

This project uses the NASA WorldWind SDK for the virtual globe, which is provided by the Emxsys - Terramenta project dependency, which is another NetBeans maven project.

This project is licensed under the BSD 3-Clause license.
