Model evaluation for forecasts of wildfire activity and spread Schoenberg, Rick


Some methods for evaluating point process models, coverage process models, and other models for wildfire occurrence and spread will be discussed. Particular focus will be placed on deviance residuals, super-thinned residuals, and Voronoi residuals. Advantages and disadvantages of the different methods will be reviewed, and some related open problems and ways in which wildfire forecasters and statisticians might help one another will be reviewed.
