What Is WFA Pocket?

WFA Pocket is a mobile app that embodies the latest wildland fire behavior science into a robust tool for the firefighter and Fire Behavior Analyst.  Leveraging the science developed by the US Forest Service Missoula Fire  Sciences Lab, this app enhances calculations with a 3D interactive map interface, real-time weather integration, and seamless fuels data assimilation.

WFA Pocket provides the wildland fire community with a powerful analytical tool that is designed to be used in the field. The app works either connected or disconnected, providing outputs and results in a form that is readily understood and usable.

WFA Pocket has been developed with ESRI AppStudio.

Proven Science With Robust Technology

The Science Behind WFA Pocket

WFA Pocket uses concepts and formulas developed by the US Forest Service Missoula Fire Sciences Lab to perform fire behavior calculations.  It is a culmination of the wonderful science made possible by the work of applied wildfire scientists and wildland firefighters across the world.  WFA Pocket compiles knowledge gained from the five plus decades of applied research on wildfire behavior, and is intended to serve as a companion to the Fire Behavior Field Reference Guide (PMS 437).

Technosylva acknowledges the outstanding  research conducted by the Missoula Fire Sciences Lab, the Rocky Mountain Research Station, and the many other scientists and practitioners who have pioneered much of this science.

How WFA Pocket Works

On Scene Observed Conditions Inputs

Define Inputs Based on Real-time Data

Easily enter data based on observed conditions and real-time fuels, wind, slope, moisture and temperature data.

A variety of fire behavior outputs instantly.

Instantly View Outputs & Results

Outputs are calculated immediately and displayed on an interactive 3D map, supplemented by charts & tables.

Adjust inputs and parameters as conditions change on the fly.

Modify Parameters & Inputs as Conditions Change

Easily modify inputs and parameters to quickly view revised outputs based on changing conditions.

WFA Pocket provides instantaneous calculation for fire behavior outputs based on the inputs and parameters selected by the user.

Real time integration to weather services and LANDFIRE fuels data allows users to define and modify inputs to best match observed conditions in-the-field.
