Abstract

A collaboration between simulationists and scientists working on fire spread and ecology led to the design of a 3D visualization tool. This tool is a post-processor which can be linked to existing discrete event fire spread models. An object-oriented analysis and design has been retained to produce flexible open source software. The tool developed can produce realistic 3D landscape rendering of fire spread on regular PC. This software is now used in Corsica to help in prospective studies around the region of Montegrosso.
