Interactive maps to track wildfires across the Western US

Esri has developed two interactive maps to track wildfires across the Western United States. The first one is called Wildfire Public Information Map. It contains updated information about wildfires from the U.S. Geological Survey. It also displays live weather warnings and wind information, courtesy the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The second one is a story map called 2015 California Wildfire Activity. It shows fire perimeters and hot spots for each active fire. One can also see statistics, like total acreage, percent containment and the damage caused
