Seeing Through the Smoke

August 13, 2013 - 2:02pm -- idfg-bthomas

Fire is again having a big impact on Idaho's landscape. 

To assist in your hunting, angling and outdoor adventures this late summer and fall, Idaho Fish and Game will be working with the Boise National Forest and other Wildfire Teams to keep you up to date on fire closures. We are compiling the latest fire activity and closures from InciWeb and making them available as real-time maps and downloads on our website.

 

Web maps to view real-time closures, fire activity with hunt boundaries.

To view closures in real-time on-line we have added fire closures and fire activity to two web applications:


IDFG Fire Map

This tool is optimized for mobile viewing and allows you overlay hunt boundaries on current fire activity from satellites and fire emergency closures. Fire activity is updated every two hours.

fishandgame.idaho.gov/ifwis/maps/realtime/fire

 


Huntplanner Map Center

We've added wildfire layers for fire activity, perimeters, closures and historical fire activity to the Huntplanner.  View these layers alongside trails, campgrounds, hunts and other features.

View in your GPS, Google Earth and offline.



Download the closure layer as a Google Earth(KMZ) or Shapefile(SHP) for offline viewing.  If your GPS unit requires GPX, there's a conversion utility to transfer KMZ to GPX.

This layer was digitized by individual USFS Fire Incident Teams and compile by Boise National Forest and IFWIS Cartographers. We will be updating these layer regularly through the hunting season.

Full text descriptions of all fire closures in Idaho are available on Inciweb.
