The destruction caused by wildfires has led to the development of various models that try to predict the effects of this phenomenon. However, as the computational complexity of these models increases, their utility for real-time applications diminishes. Fortunately, the burgeoning processing power of the graphics processing unit can not only mitigate these concerns but also allow for high-fidelity visualization. We present VFire, an immersive wildfire simulation and visualization system. Users… CONTINUE READING
