Use the Search tab to enter your own coordinates. The map will zoom to the coordinates entered. You may change the format required for coordinates by using the dropdown menu. Press Search to zoom the map to the location of your coordinates. Click Close to dismiss the window What s Your Risk? The What s Your Risk (WYR) tool provides you the capability to select a location on the map and calculate the potential fire intensity for that location. It is intended to inform homeowners and business owners of the impending risk for their location based on surrounding conditions. You can use the Bing! Search tool to enter in a specific street address and zoom to that address, or simply use the map navigation tools to zoom into a specific location on the map. The tool will provide a description of the fire intensity potential based on the conditions within the general vicinity of the location you define. Basic recommendations are also provided for preparedness. To obtain more detailed information, it is highly recommended you contact a qualified local mitigation planner. A link is provided to connect you to the Texas A&M Forest Service mitigation web site where more information can be obtained. The tool uses the Fire Intensity Scale (FIS) layer to determine the potential fire intensity for the specified location. FIS quantifies potential fire intensity based on high to extreme weather conditions, fuels, and topography. It is similar to the Richter scale for earthquakes, providing a standard scale to measure potential wildfire intensity by magnitude. FIS consist of 5 classes where the order of magnitude between classes is ten-fold. The minimum class, Class 1, represents very low wildfire intensities and the maximum class, Class 5, represents very high wildfire intensities. Fire Intensity Scale (FIS) Class 1 (Very Low) Class 2 (Low) Class 3 (Moderate) Class 4 (High) Class 5 (Very High) FIS data is modeled at 30-meter resolution. Accordingly, while this is accurate enough to provide general ratings, it is not appropriate for site specific recommendations. For site specific advice, please contact a October 2012 Page 17

22 selected layer using the slider bar, which may be necessary to view the underlying base map. Click on the Show Legend/Hide Legend icon to toggle the legend for the "active" layer on and off. Wildfire Risk Themes This group contains the primary risk assessment results including key intermediate input layers that have been derived. The maps in this group are considered active layers. Wildfire Behavior Outputs This group contains derived fire behavior outputs, which are influenced by three environmental factors - fuels, weather, and topography. Weather is by far the most dynamic variable as it changes frequently. To account for this variability, four percentile weather categories were created from historical weather observations to represent low, moderate, high, and extreme weather days for each weather influence zone in Texas. A weather influence zone is an area where, for analysis purposes, the weather on any given day is considered uniform. There are 22 weather influence zones in Texas. The characteristic output is the typical or representative wildfire behavior output of a potential fire based on a weighted average of four percentile weather categories. The maps in this group are considered active layers. Landscape Characteristics This group describes Texas landscape characteristics (i.e. vegetation, surface fuels, etc...). The maps in this group are considered active layers. Historical Wildfire Occurrence This group contains maps for all historical ignitions, large fires over 500 acres, and wildfires with case study descriptions.

Only one project area can be selected or active at a time. Multiple project areas can be created and saved across sessions; however they are only accessible from the computer and browser they were created on. The Manage Project Areas toolbox will tell you what project area is active. Check Show on map if you want to draw the project area boundary on the map. Click Zoom To to zoom the map to the project area boundary. Click Manage to open the Manage Project Areas dialog. Manage Project Areas dialog The Manage Project Areas dialog lists the project areas you have created and allows you to create new or delete existing project areas. This dialog can stay open while you work with the map. Simply drag the window to the side of the browser window if it is in the way. To zoom to a project area boundary, click the magnifying glass. To delete an existing project area, click the red X. You will be asked to confirm your decision. from Shapefile. There are two primary workflows to create a project area 1) Create on Map and 2) Create Project areas have a maximum size limit of 5,198,300 acres. October 2012 Page 25

26 Create on Map Press the Create button on the Manage Project Areas dialog and follow these basic steps: Step 1: Select Project Area Option County or Incorporated City This option requires you to select an existing county or city from the dropdown lists. Once you select a name, the map will zoom automatically to that area and the boundary will be drawn. Tip When you select a county, only the incorporated cities in that county will be shown in the incorporated city dropdown list. Custom This option allows you to draw a custom boundary on the map. To do so, follow these steps: Step 1a: Digitize Project Area You can draw a boundary on the map using the following options: o o o Draw a point and define a buffer Draw a polygon boundary Use single left-mouse clicks to digitize points and a double left-mouse click to finish the polygon boundary Draw a rectangle Press down on the map with the left-mouse button and drag the mouse to create a rectangle. Let go to finish. If you make a mistake, use the Clear Graphics button to start over. Step 1b: Define buffer distance You can use this option to define a buffer distance around the point or polygon you digitized. Check the box and define the number of miles you want as a buffer. A buffer is required for points. Step 2: Create Project Area Once you have defined the boundary for your Project Area, enter a name for the area and press the Define button. The Project Area feature will be created and drawn on the map. The map will zoom automatically to your new Project Area and the name and acreage of your area will be shown in the Manage Project Area dialog. October 2012 Page 26

27 Create from Shapefile You can also create a project area using the Create from Shapefile tool. This tool allows you to upload an existing shapefile from your computer. The shapefile must meet the following requirements: Shapefile must be in the USA Contiguous Albers Equal Area Conic USGS coordinate system (wkid: ) Shapefile must be uploaded as a ZIP file that contains the following file types: SHP, DBF, and PRJ ZIP file must be 2MB or less Shapefiles may have multiple polygons, however you will need to select a single polygon to define your Project Area Multi-part polygons can be used to create a project area. Multi-part polygon project areas are compatible with all tools except Generate Summary Report. If you wish to generate a summary report, you must convert your multi-part polygon to single-part polygons prior to uploading. To use a shapefile as your Project Area, follow these steps: Step 1: Select Shapefile ZIP file Press the Create from Shapefile button and navigate to your zipped shapefile. Select the file and click Open. The application will unzip your shapefile and zoom the map to the full extent of all polygons within. Step 2: Select Polygon and enter name Use the mouse to click and select the polygon you want to use for your Project Area. Enter the Project Area name and click OK. Valid characters for Project Area names are A-Z, a-z, 0-9, comma, and space. October 2012 Page 27

28 4.11 Generate a Summary Report The Generate Summary Report tool will generate a comprehensive risk summary report for the active Project Area. You must define a Project Area before you can create a report. The Manage Project Areas toolbox will show you what project area is active. The risk summary report includes statistics, maps and charts of all key risk assessment input and output datasets. By default, the address associated with your user account will be shown. Ensure the address is correct, or provide a different address to receive the report download link. Press the Create button to create the report. Note that this is a very comprehensive report and accordingly may take more than an hour to complete. You will receive an when the report is ready to download. Once you have submitted your request, you can continue to use the Professional Viewer application or exit the application without interrupting the report generation. The report is provided in Microsoft Word.docx format. This affords easy integration with other documents Exporting Data The Export Data tool will create a zip file with the GIS datasets for the active Project Area. You must define a Project Area before you can create the zip file. The Manage Project Areas toolbox will show you what project area is active. The zip file will contain all key input and output assessment data. By default, the address associated with your user account will be shown. Ensure the address is correct or provide a different address to receive the download link. Press the Export button to create the zip file. Note that it may take more than an hour to complete this request. You will receive an when the zip file is completed and ready to download.

42 Wildfire Risk Themes This group contains the primary risk assessment results including key intermediate input layers that have been derived. The maps in this group are considered active layers. Wildfire Behavior Outputs This group contains derived fire behavior outputs, which are influenced by three environmental factors - fuels, weather, and topography. Weather is by far the most dynamic variable as it changes frequently. To account for this variability, four percentile weather categories were created from historical weather observations to represent low, moderate, high, and extreme weather days for each weather influence zone in Texas. A weather influence zone is an area where, for analysis purposes, the weather on any given day is considered uniform. There are 22 weather influence zones in Texas. The characteristic output is the typical or representative wildfire behavior output of a potential fire based on a weighted average of four percentile weather categories. The maps in this group are considered active layers. Landscape Characteristics This group describes Texas landscape characteristics (i.e. vegetation, surface fuels, etc...). The maps in this group are considered active layers. 6.9 Map Tools Tools are provided that allow you to view and explore the map layers in more detail.
