The special forest fire prevention task of Beijing puts forward a higher demand of the forest fire prevention informatization. Based on geographical simulation system theory, and taken dynamic data driven application systems as technological paradigm, this paper brought forward a new fire simulation technology framework and network system, solved the key technology in the simulation system building process such as model base construction and management, model suitability selection, model adaptive correction, real-time simulation validation, forest fire space spreading simulation, and so on. Automation and intelligent selecting precision of the forest fire model reached more than 80%. Model error correction simulation reached a more satisfactory result. With the further improvement of system construction, the system will integrate with the operational system, and improve the forest fire fighting decision-making.
