Fire Tower Site Analysis For Northern New Jersey

For my Advanced Geographic Information Systems (GIS) course, we were tasked with completing a GIS project for a community partner. I worked with the New Jersey Forest Fire Service to determine whether the state’s current fire towers in the Northern region should remain in place or be moved and also find the best locations for new fire towers. I determined that the current fire towers should remain in place and I also proposed two new locations that would fill in coverage gaps, thereby increasing visibility by 15%. Materials from this project, including my report and presentation, can be found below.

Note: the formatting of the written report looks best when downloaded and opened directly in Microsoft Word
