The Scripps Institution of Oceanography Visualization Center produced a DVD from HPWREN Cedar Fire images

Cedar Fire DVD

The Scripps Institution of Oceanography Visualization Center (SIO VizCenter) has produced a time-synchronized video from images taken from various cameras on the High Performance Wireless Research and Education Network (HPWREN) during the October 2003 wildfires in San Diego. The accompanying narration by Ron Serabia (retired CDF Fire Captain) describes how the fires spread and the aerial attack on the Cedar fire.

The movie is available as a free download on the SIO VizCenter website at http://www.siovizcenter.ucsd.edu/library/iotd/2004/09/wildfire.html. You can request a DVD of the movie by sending email to Atul Nayak. The DVD also has extra features such as a movie of vegetation growth after the fires, taken by the HPWREN station at La Cima. 50 of these DVDs were distributed to attendees at the HPWREN Annual Users Group meeting in September 2004. The San Diego Natural History Museum and Natural Disasters professors at SIO and San Diego State University have also been provided with copies of the DVD.

Evan Morikawa (junior, High Tech High School, Point Loma) created this movie as part of a summer internship at the SIO VizCenter. He was assisted by Atul Nayak, Frank Vernon, Jennifer Matthews (IGPP), Hans-Werner Braun (SDSC) and Ron Serabia.
