Case Study Insights
Wildland Fire’s Air Tactical Team
“Not too long ago, it was common to carry a briefcase filled with maps as large as 3 ft. x 2ft. that marked heli spots, division breaks, and numerous other landmarks. Although valuable, paper maps were very cumbersome, and sometimes so large that the ends could touch wall to wall in a tiny cockpit. When crews started to use digital maps on their iPads, it was definitely a welcome move for many. We used to get our first look of the fire during the morning briefing when the paper maps were handed out, but now both air and ground personnel come to the briefing more prepared knowing what they’re up against.”Read the case study
United States Forest Service
“So much can change overnight when it comes to a wildfire or a hurricane. Now that we have Avenza Maps, we can update our maps throughout the day to keep everyone fully informed of the situation.”Read the case study
