1/4 Why is perimeter data on the #Inciweb fire map out-of-date? The Inciweb map simply displays perimeter data that is hosted on the GeoMAC #GIS server. Why doesn’t the GeoMAC server have current perimeter data? #WAfire #ORfire #CAfire #AZfire #COfire #MTfire #GeoSpatial
2/4 For most big fires there usually is a nighttime overflight with infrared sensing gear. Experts analyze that data and determine a new fire perimeter. They also determine areas of intense, scattered and isolated heat. That data is then hosted on the public NIFC FTP server.
3/4 That new fire perimeter eventually shows up on the GeoMAC server and will then appear on the Inciweb map. The problem is that it seems to take a day or more for that perimeter data to go from the NIFC server to the GeoMAC server. Surely that process could be speeded up.
