FireStation (FS) is a CAD application to simulate fire spread over complex topography. FS is being integrated into the CROSS-Fire project, which aims to develop a grid-based risk management decision support system for civil protection (CP).
Previous work focused on (i) parallelisation of the FS execution model and (ii) integration on the EGEE infrastructure to support higher processing/storage capabilities, improved I/O data resolution/models complexity, faster multi-simulation execution and wider simulation areas.
This work stresses the relevance of standards adoption: OGC-WCS/WFS/WPS to exploit/enable geospatial services for data access and processing, and SWE/OGC to address other CP data sources, such as meteorological stations data or satellite images.
The user interface exploits an SDI client, which comply with OGC and EU INSPIRE directives, to give decision makers access to the spatial data infrastructure, to launch simulations on the grid and visualize the fire propagation.

Special requirements other than the set up mentioned in the CfA text.
