Since taking an introductory course in GIS five years ago I haven't looked back, spending much of my free time looking for new ways of presenting data. My interest particularly lies in the application of GIS for disaster management, search and rescue and incident command. The GIS programs I worked on previously had limited potential for learning and performing some of the more advanced GIS work, but QGIS has opened new and exciting doors which I am exploring with glee.

comment How to create the fuel models & live fuel moisture rasters for Wildfire simulation?
Thanks, I've had some time to work on fire risk analysis in my spare time and have figured most of it out. Now just to test whether my methodology is correct.

comment How to install GRASS in QGIS Dufour?
'Click here' just takes me to the user guide which is of no further help in resolving the problem. I'm using Windows 7 and used the standalone installer.

At this stage, I guess anything would be better than that which I have access to! Whatever I've found so far is very generic and doesn't take different types of vegetation into account i.e. it may only provide the biome type which then does not include plantations or farm orchards or areas where an abundance of alien invasive species are found. These all of course have a major influence on fires.

Thanks Nikos :) I've figured it all out, except I somehow need to adapt the American fuel models to South African vegetation. Finding appropriate landcover data at a high enough resolution is also a bit of a challenge.
