Short summary
The Web-GIS wildfire prevention and management platform AEGIS was developed aiming at reducing the potential human, environmental and property losses. The AEGIS platform assists with early fire warning, fire planning, fire control and coordination of firefighting forces by providing access to information that is essential for wildfire management. All functionalities are accessible for free to civil protection authorities, through an appropriate and modern graphical user interface.
