Space-Time Insight Visualization and Workflow Software Drives Rapid Response to Wildfires

Share Article

Just in time for wildfire season, Space-Time insight has the right solution to enable preventive action and rapid response.

Space-Time Insight customers use Space-Time Insight software to enable rapid, effective response to wildfires. The company's customers estimate that using Space-Time Insight software during last year's fire season, when 1500 fires raged across California, saved the state of California billions of dollars in avoided economic disruption.

Space-Time Insight is the only available software that both delivers powerful, real-time situation visualization to operations personnel and also connects directly to employee workflow systems to enable immediate step-by-step response, alerting and tasking to the right key response personnel to address the emergency rapidly and effectively.

Specific to wildfires, Space-Time Insight automatically monitors and alerts personnel about fire locations, their relative priority status, last observed time, wind gusts and direction, relative humidity, fuel moisture levels, temperature, and proximity to critical assets and enables managers to locate and provide step-by-step best practice-based tasking through remediation scripts sent automatically to the appropriate response personnel and through the Space-Time Insight interface.

With a project developed using Space-Time Insight software, one of Space-Time Insight's utility customers won Utility/T&D Automation and Engineering magazine's 2009 GIS Project of the Year Award and is featured in the March 2009 issue of that magazine. The utility used the application to view and track active fires, wind direction, and associated data, receive alerts when wind speed thresholds were exceeded, and have this information easily compiled on the dashboard. Having access to this information in real time relative to specific utility assets improved the utility's response time, operational efficiency and effectiveness. The project showed its value during the 2008 fire season when the utility launched proactive fire-preparedness efforts.

Space-Time Insight's CEO, Mark Feldman, PhD, says, "Space-Time Insight is the only software that provides operators both real-time visualization of a crisis as it's unfolding and also enables customers to assign best-practice action scripts to the right response personnel to address that crisis immediately and directly from the same screen."

Space-Time Insight delivers real-time crisis visualization, analytics, and management. Additionally, for advance planning, Space-Time Insight allows operators to run simulations to plan for better future response. Space-Time Insight further enables planners to roll-back time and re-play on screen actual historical events exactly as they unfolded for training purposes.
