Planned Burns Map

Planned Burns Map

 

PROGRAM:  Fellowship

PARTNERS:  Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning

DESCRIPTION: The Department currently has 3 separate maps; 24 hour outlook, 10 day planned burns and 1 year planned burn, as well as a notification system. Users find it increasingly difficult to navigate between the 4 separate pages, as well as having no profile features to set multiple warnings for their area

This project sought to create a functional prototype that would assist the department to communicate stages of planned burns with a user-friendly and accessible mapping tool. The tool would provide allow the community to prepare for burns around their locations, as well as an include information about the reasons behind burns.
