A planning tool to maximize wildfire resilience and ecological benefits
Built on the best science and data
Planscape is a new wildfire resilience planning tool designed to bring the best available state and federal data and science together in a user-friendly, accessible format.
Planscape will help regional planners prioritize landscape treatments to mitigate fire risk, maximize ecological benefits and help California’s landscapes adapt to climate change.
Available for free, early 2023
Planscape is built by the California Natural Resources Agency in collaboration with Google.org.
It will be available in Q2 2023, open source, and free to use.
“Californians are threatened by worsening wildfires driven by an overheated, unstable climate. Planscape will leverage science and data to help deliver wildfire resilience projects that protect our communities and natural places.”
Wade Crowfoot. California Secretary for Natural Resources.
