Google Earth for Prefire Planning and Watershed Education
Google Earth is a free program that allows any Internet user with a good connection speed to view 3-d aerial imagery of anywhere on earth. We use this software to help our customers, and the public-at-large, to understand how their location on the landscape affects their exposure to wildfire losses. The "virtual tours" below present wildfire mapping and hazard assessment data using the Google Earth program.
