Abstract

The objective of this paper is to present an approach for a web-based training system for Forest fire offices. The development of a modelling and simulation technology for systems with a network-like architecture is growing day by day. Forest fire offices represent an appropriate application such approach. It is based on an XML languages family defined in a research project and is applied to a number of systems that have been modelled and simulated. This paper introduces two different related issues: the system architecture; and the XML-based language and its use for simulation.
