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.

A lot of work is going into the project, with project lead Bruce Schubert's @Emxsys twitter link being an interesting one to follow.

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