I do a lot of online mapping for morel hunters: mapping burn perimeters for mushroom hunters each year. This map shows the 8/18 lines in blue and the 8/19 lines in red. You can clearly see the team is doing an exceptional job at keeping this fire contained!
The basemap can be changed by clicking on the buttons (Map (can toggle topo by clicking terrain)/Satellite/USFS/USGS). You can toggle full screen by clicking the square frame icon top right (esc to go back to regular screen).

You can turn on and off the different perimeters from different days in this map.
Thank you for this. It is just the information I have been looking for.
Where do I find out what the colored lines mean? Purple, red, blue, yellow….etc
The colored lines are each day’s perimeter – Yellow (8/12), White (8/13), Blue (8-14), Red (8-15), Green (8-16). Note… they are often measured the night before. Thus, 8/16 is measured from 7PM on 8/15. So, each day shows the previous days growth.
Thank you!!! This is the best map yhat I have ffoin out there to help figure out where the fire is.
Thanks for all this. Really can see better than Grizzly creek posts
Thanks Trent! Great map.
Repeating what everyone said before best explanation of what the fire is doing
Awesome map, thank you for compiling the data and progression. Being on the easterly side of this fire any information is helpful and gives some peace of mind.
Great job Trent, Thank you!
HI CJ, thanks!
WOW, great work on this. Thank you for sharing!!
Thanks so much, Trent !! It’s a HUGE help !!! You are providing a much needed service to this community!
Thank you, Trent. This is very helpful. I let the Sopris Sun know about it. I think editor Will Grandbois was actually looking for a progression map.
Just want to thank you Trent. Great map!!! Can see clearly where the fire is and where it is going.
Thanks for offering up your talents!!
Thank you for this!!
