In the evening hours of Tuesday, June 26th, 2012 the Waldo Canyon Fire destroyed over 350 structures in Mountain Shadows, a Northwestern Subdivision of Colorado Springs that sits in the wild land-urban interface. This single event led to the Waldo Canyon Fire being considered the most destructive Wild Fire in Colorado history. The Governments and Utility GIS organizations were working 24 hours a day in support of the community providing maps and other geospatial information of the damage areas. To support the government community and wildfire response teams, Sanborn deployed an emergency response service that used remote sensing and web based technologies to provide maps of the disaster area. This presentation will focus on the events that led up to this disaster, a firsthand experience of evacuation, provide a timeline of the fire response, discuss technologies used by Sanborn including VisionMap’s A3 camera, ESRI’s Map Service and Leaflet. Furthermore, the presentation will focus on how the data was/is being used by the Government(s) and Utility organizations for both tactical and recovery efforts.
