EMSINA and National Bushfire Boundary Data
Members from the Emergency Management Spatial Information Network Australia (EMSINA) have been involved in the creation of a Nationally aggregated and harmonsied bushfire boundary product since the beginning of the Black Summer Bushfires in 2019/2020.
Utilising existing networks the Group has successfully partnered with a range of Government agencies, industry and research bodies to access, design, develop and deliver bushfire boundary related datasets to the Australian EM community.
The information presented below is a history of EMSINA's past and current involvement in the development of National Bushfire Boundary datasets:
