Amicus Bushfire Knowledge Base: Amicus is a multi-platform computer application developed by CSIRO that enables the easy calculation of expected fire behaviour from burning conditions that you enter. It synthesises our current knowledge for predicting the behaviour and spread of bushfires in a range of vegetation types as well as providing simple calculations of expected fire danger. This is a beta release for public evaluation. Amicus website, Amicus download.
