Mapbox Releases New Map to Track Fires in Northern California and Across the U.S.

National Interactive Map Shows Fire Perimeter with Address Search and Detailed Satellite Imagery

Using the best available data coming from Geospatial Multi-Agency Coordination and from the agencies and first responders on the ground, this map allows anyone to search a specific address to see where it falls in relation to the fire perimeters for wildfires burning across the United States. Coupled with up to date satellite imagery from Digital Globe, this tool can provide valuable information to help those affected by fires get information about their family, friends, homes, and businesses.

For the latest version of the Mapbox Fire Map, go to: https://www.mapbox.com/labs/norcal-fire-2017/

Please note, this is an informational tool only and we cannot guarantee the data accuracy of an actively burning fire. Please refer to the legend and take note of date and time stamps both for the latest satellite imagery and fire perimeter information provided on this map, as they are delivered from separate data sources. The satellite imagery is collected by DigitalGlobe and released as part of their Open Data Program. Currently, our imagery layer shows the newest data on top. You may see seams between images, where collections overlap. Data will be updated as quickly as it can be processed for publication.
