Abstract Research into principles for the design and delivery of visualisations for a mobile scenario training exercises are an important element of a demonstrations prototype for training firefighters. CODE RED: MOBILE incorporates geovisualisations of bushfires made using the game editor Sandbox2, part of the Crysis Wars Software Development Kit (SDK). The geovisualisations are 3D scenes in the game engine that are saved in the.mp4 format. The demonstration prototype is designed to incorporate the dynamics of bushfires such as those of Victoria's catastrophic 'Black Saturday', 2009. Photo-graphs of several bushfire scenes were used to guide bushfire modelling. The completed application contains geovisualisations of a virtual bushfire at Hanging Rock in Central Victoria, Australia. These geovisualisations are delivered at GPS determined locations in the 7scenes application on an iPad or iPhone. This paper provides information about the development of the demonstration prototype components and describes the subsequent .mp4 movies and static screenshots developed for delivery on mobile geolocatable smart phones and tablets.
