Real-Time Fires with Hunt Areas
This application displays real-time fire information from MODIS Fire Detections with the most recent Fire Emergency Closures for fire closures in Idaho.
Hunt boundaries for Controlled Hunts, Game Management Units and Elk Zones may be added by selecting a hunt from the right-hand menu. For more layers and options visit the Idaho Fish and Game Huntplanner MapCenter.
Background terrain maps, road maps and aerial imagery may be interchanged by toggling the map dropdown in the upper-left.
This application is constructed by "mashing up" publicly-available data sources from the U.S. Forest Service, National Interagency Fire Center FTP Server, Idaho Fish and Wildife Information System, Open Street Maps and Google Maps.
