Abstract

Considering the fact that in Dalmatia (Croatia), during the summer, forest fires occur very frequently causing catastrophic damages on the valuable environment, influencing tourism and other activities, MIS (Management Information System) for fire protection is conceptualised. MIS is based on the integration of the fire protection system and GIS of the Split-Dalmatia County with management models that evaluate ambient characteristics. GIS contains county maps with infrastructure data and objects, scale 1:25000, and new (aggregated) data about environment generated by MIS. In view of worldwide experiences in the real-time forest fire detection using telecommunication systems and sensors
