Interesting talk in the ADGIS lab today, with Will Burt, Regional Geomatics Analyst Kootenay Boundary Region, Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations (MFLNRO). He talked about the role GIS plays in forest fire management, and about the kinds of things you do, day to day, in an Incident Command Team

It was a nice connection to where some of these students will go - several past grads have had coop jobs at the the Southeast Fire Centre. Also it was nice to see a number of the students in this group that have come through the geomatics courses that our two year diploma students take.
