A lot of detail about the #woodwardfire today in the morning briefing. Watch the video to get all the details. Unfortunately they did not get to the sheriff update at the end for some reason.

I did another overlay with the latest Marin County Fire map onto the Point Reyes National Seashore trail map. Remember, this does NOT an actual map of 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 8/23/20.
- The red area is USA Wildfires v1 current perimeter.
- The red dots are MODIS and VIIRS thermal hotspots and fire activity.
The most active part of the fire was on the northern perimeter with some "spotting" (small fires) which were "pressing their control lines" which is why they're concentrating the scooper planes there.
They're doing a lot work with bulldozers and crews to fortify all of the lines (fire breaks) around and off the fire to stop the spread. If the wind stays light today, sounds like they could make some good progress. Fingers crossed.
