California Fires on Google Earth and Maps
The Google Earth blog today included several links to near-real-time maps of the California wildfires, visible in Google Maps and Google Earth:
- The LA Times created this Google Map (Google Earth version) of the fires in the LA region
- The US Forest Service has this Google Earth file (based on NASA satellite data) of near-real-time fires for the entire continental US
For those of you without access to Google Maps or Google Earth, CALFIRE (California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection) has plenty of up-to-date information on the fires, including frequently-updated incident maps covering the entire state.
