Wildfire mapping

Today I made a map using some wildfire data from a source I hadn’t used before: MODIS thermal imagery. It’s really cool and it lets you map fires that don’t have an administrative boundary, which is what I used for the Sockeye Fire map I made last week.

Here’s the map. Click here for the story it goes with.
