California experienced its largest wildfire season on record with a single wildfire burning more than 1 million acres. Data has been crucial to inform decision makers and innovation is being applied. This session will dive into the public-private benefits of putting trusted data to work as we tie into the ESIP theme of ‘Leading Innovation in Earth Science Frontiers’. The California Wildfires of 2020 demonstrated that disasters can be on-going and multi-dimensional with COVID-19, evacuations, and destroyed towns. We will discuss key trusted data needs and identify additional opportunities for data applications in support of life saving operations. How can coordination and data sharing accelerate public-private situational awareness and decision making? Are there steps that agencies could take to successfully share their data with decision makers and the public?
