    Description

    From the location of a fire lookout and the sites of past fires within a given radius about a lookout, an estimate of the fire distribution with respect to distance from the lookout can be obtained. The estimated distribution can include all fires located within a given number of feet below the last maximum line of sight from the lookout. Seen areas for the same lookout can be developed, stored, and plotted at a computer site for future work.
