Pitney Bowes Advanced Concepts and Technologies Group in collaboration with PB’s MapInfo Group has built an free application dubbed “The Fire Locator” with multiple dimensions of data to overlay atop a Microsoft Virtual Earth map with a Silverlight user experience.  The app is released in beta at FireLocator.net, this free, state-of-the-art site disseminates timely critical wildfire data and information to the public. FireLocator integrates data from multiple sources to provide users with comprehensive views of both current and past wildfires. By entering a target address in the address bar, users are able to mark a location of interest on the map using Pitney Bowes MapInfo’s geocoding technology. This allows users to track fires around a specific address, neighborhood, or area of interest.”
