GPL software helps manage forest fires

flattr this!

Found this mention of an interesting free software (GPL) project from the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria:

Capaware “gives a real-time forecast which allows [you] to know the evolution and intensity of a fire.” The software is in use at the Insular Operations Coordination Centre of Cabildo de La Palma, where it is used for fire simulations and to analyse the management of available resources.

In reality the scope of the project is more general:

Capaware! is a framework for developing 3D multilayer geographical worlds.So powerful as it allows execution of applications directly over it, offers a wide range of applications. To have a quick composition of the stage,nothing better than working directly in three dimensions.
