This web tool will allow users to customize and scale weather station optimization analysis to their areas of interest. The tool will be able to generate two types of optimization surfaces:
- Optimization based on fire risk (when the predictor variables are specific to regional fire behavior).
- Optimization based on regional climate (when predictor variables characterize the regional climate).

Weather Station Optimization
The Extreme Weather Team is helping utility companies identify blindspots and optimize the location of weather stations.
Better weather data will allow more accurate forecasts, allowing officials to take steps to mitigate the impacts of wildfire on infrastructure and assets.
