Most people who live and hike in Point Reyes are most familiar with the area through the trails and camps. It's been hard to orient a sense of the fire without those landmarks. I took the fire map from Marin County Fire and overlaid it onto the Point Reyes National Seashore trail map. It is important to remember that the fire map is not an ACTUAL map of the fire. It is some data points collected throughout the day about the fire.
From Paul Doherty (GIS for EM Professor): "The perimeter is only generally mapped once a day by a nighttime infrared sensor on a plane and corrected by an expert. Satellite hotspots occur a few times a day but are not precise and are not reviewed / edit by experts."
- The pink area is the Woodward fire perimeter as of 8/21/20.
- The red area is USA Wildfires v1 current perimeter.
- The red dots are MODIS and VIIRS thermal hotspots and fire activity.
