California fire threat map and current fires

Postby Joseph » Sat Jan 25, 2014 1:26 pm

The link below starts Gmap4 and displays a map showing the wild fire threat level for California. Red is “very high” and the darker color is “extreme”. There is sure a lot of red! It might take a few seconds for all the data to appear on the map.

This map can also display current fires that are being tracked by the inter-agency GeoMAC team and some other GIS (Geographic Information System) data layers related to wild fires that you usually do not see all on the same map.

Each time you view the map you are seeing the latest data from the state and federal servers. To learn more about the map please visit the two links in the upper left corner of the map. The “About” link will show you how to turn the GIS overlays on/off, change the order in how the overlays stack on top of each other, make your own custom link for this map and more. ... threat.txt
