Not sure where to put this. Since I feel smoke affecting my health, I put it this thread.

I want to share a couple online maps I use to navigate and/or know what to expect down the road in regards to wildfires.

This one I use for smoke:

This one is for the PNW, but you can navigate to maps and info for different regions.


Feel free to add more resources!

I had a bunch of these bookmarked when i was in BC.

A good one for Canada that also shows US is: Smoke Forecast - FireSmoke.ca - https://firesmoke.ca/forecasts/current/

I also highly recommend this one: earth :: a global map of wind, weather, and ocean conditions - https://earth.nullschool.net/

It shows wind patterns all over the world, and you can put different overlays to capture air quality, so not just fire smoke but other air pollution too.

If you're interested in the fires themselves (not just the smoke) this Firemappers dashboard captures a lot of the reports: ArcGIS Web Application - https://www.arcgis.com/apps/webappviewer/index.html?id=6dc469279760492d802c7ba6db45ff0e

Total amount
$10.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $10.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $10.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $10.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $10.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
