Research Insights

When researching the current resources used by my interviewees and others in CA, I found that the maps were difficult to read, dense with information, and did not provide additional contexts like wind patterns or evacuation routes.

People generally liked to see the progress on containment for fires, but they were more concerned with the fires closest to them.

This round of investigation reiterated that it was vital for information to be tailored to the user and that fire boundaries and contextual information like wind, highways, and evacuation specifics should be viewable in conjunction.
