The proof is in the pudding! See for yourself how the CDS Wildfire Model performs by clicking on the brushfire perimeter maps below. This is a great way to compare what the CDS Wildfire Model labeled as low, medium and high to what actually burned.
These maps show the outlines of recent major fires in California. The maps have the areas that burned overlaid on the CDS wildfire model. As you can see, the CDS wildfire model matches very well! These maps do accurately predict wildfire risks.
