Wildland Fire Management on the NetBeans Platform

Kenai.com hosts a NetBeans Platform based implementation of the Campbell Prediction System (CPS), which helps manage and predict the behavior of wildland fire. CPS is described as being used to adjust tactics and strategies to ensure the safety of firefighters and the effective use of resources.

I've seen this CPS implementation on Kenai before, but a lot of development seems to have been taking place in the past few weeks and so I downloaded it to have a look. A lot of work is going into the project, with project lead Bruce Schubert's @Emxsys twitter link being an interesting one to follow.

Here's what the NetBeans Platform based application looks like currently:

This is a NetBeans Platform application with a 3D terrain viewer using NASA WorldWind, JOGL, VisAD and Weka libraries.
