Weather Information Management System (WIMS)
The Weather Information Management System (WIMS) is a comprehensive system that helps a user manage weather information. WIMS replaced the Administrative Forest Fire Information Retrieval and Management System (AFFIRMS) as the host for the National Fire Danger Rating System (NFDRS), incorporating both the 1978 and 1988 fuel models. WIMS allows a user to retrieve weather information by providing: 1) timely access to many weather information sources; 2) efficient tools for managing data; 3) data manipulation and display functions; and 4) interactive communications environment.

FIREHouse is a collaboration between the Fire and Environmental Research Applications Team (FERA) of the USDA Forest Service Pacific Northwest Research Station, Pacific Wildland Fire Sciences Laboratory; the University of Washington; the National Park Service; the Bureau of Land Management – Alaska Fire Service; the US Fish and Wildlife Service; and the National Biological Information Infrastructure (NBII). The NBII is a broad, collaborative program that provides increased access to data and information on the nation’s biological resources. Funding for FIREHouse has been provided by the Joint Fire Science Program (JFSP) and NBII. FIREHouse is coordinating efforts with the Fire Research and Management Exchange System (FRAMES) project team. Content on FIREHouse will provide substantial contributions to the Northwest Fire Science Portal and the Alaska Fire Science Portal.
