Wildfire data and information should ideally be reusable and re-purposable across different fire management phases. For example, infrastructure that is vulnerable to wildfire-induced floods identified during the active-fight fighting phase should be easily discoverable to city managers weeks or even months later, when heavy rains on burn areas may trigger catastrophic debris-flow that threaten lives. The Agriculture and Climate Cluster and the Semantic Harmonization Cluster are examining how formally encoded knowledge about disasters like wildfires can be used to enable applications that result in wildfire data and information interoperability across fire management phases. This poster was presented at the 2021 Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP) Summer Meeting held virtually in July 2021.
