uWRAP Wins Award for Best Citizen Engagement Application
By: Trang Vu
The Utah Geographic Information Council awarded the Utah Wildfire Risk Assessment Portal (uWRAP) for Best Citizen Engagement Application at Utah’s GIS annual map competition!
The Utah Division of Forestry, Fire and State Lands partnered with Timmons Group to develop uWRAP and the winning ticket was uWRAP’s ease of use and the robust information that it provides to state land managers, communities and the public.
Wildfire continues to threaten people and property across Utah. uWRAP is the primary mechanism for the Utah Division of Forestry, Fire and State Lands to deploy wildfire risk information and create awareness about wildfire issues across the state.
It is comprised of a suite of applications tailored to support specific workflow and information requirements for the public, local community groups, private landowners, government officials, hazard-mitigation planners, and wildland fire managers.
