Real time spatial wildfire data for the United States



Although we are all watching the current wildfires in California, a more serious situation is occurring in Alaska with thousands of hectares currently affected. 

The Geospatial Multi-Agency Co-ordination Group provides real time mapping of current wildfires throughout the United States.  Zoom onto the flame showing a wildfire for its perimeter and then click for full details of the size of the fire, exact location and the extent to which it has grown or shrunk over the past 24 hours and also details of how much has been contained.  With high temperatures and less rainfall this is the worst season for wildfires to date.
