Beyond the expected

Australia-wide Fire Map Site

By enrique - 10 January 2013 3


Hi there Rioters,

Given the current fire dangers affecting our region I thought people might be interested in this site I just came across. Dubbed ‘Australian Bushfire Map’ it appears to aggregate information from various state and rural fire services. The value is that you don’t have to navigate between the various state based sites individually – it provides a nation-wide overview.

Given this site isn’t the actual source of truth, you might still want to refer back to the local authorities themselves to confirm any information you are interested in, i.e. ACT Emergency Services and NSW Rural Fire Service.

It’s by a group/person calling themselves the Unorthodox Engineers.

What’s Your opinion?

If you want to raise your geek hackles then try Sentinel… >10 year old web mapping software that is no longer supported by the vendor and servers that can’t cope under high load. It crashed repeatedly during the 2003 & 2009 fires… C’mon GA, time for a revamp!

The Unorthodox site uses the Sentinel data feed from GA as one of its inputs.
