Using space technology to help fight wildfires

The amount of wildfires and major weather disasters is only increasing stretching first responders and those trying to help very thin. A new program involving space technology though looks to help disaster response team get a better sense of just how much of an area has been effected. Andre Coleman is senior data scientist the pacific northwest national laboratory. I spoke with him recently to learn more about the Rapid Analytics for Disaster Response, or RADR system.
