Wildfire Map from Google Crisis Response
The Google Crisis Response team has created a US Wildfires Map to provide information about the current wildfires in Colorado.
The map uses data from the U.S. Geological Survey and the state’s Division of Emergency Management to provide a number of layers that can be viewed on a Google Map. The layers includes Active Fire Perimeters, US Red Cross Shelters and recent (2012-06-28) satellite imagery.
