Hello,

The fire history and fire activity layers are awesome additions to the map. I am wondering if you are able to add current fire perimeters to the map. I have seen a few shapefiles from various places. The one below looks to be a good one.

Thanks,
Dan

    Those are already being displayed on the Active Fire Layer. Thats where the crosshatched shape with the outline and name come from.

    Thanks. The areas I was looking at had a lot of hotspot points so I didn't
    see the perimeter line.

    Thanks again.

    In case you're referring to the Bear fire south of Quincy that grew to
    envelop Lake Oroville, I also noticed that the 'old' fire perimeter when it
    was 'just' south of Quincy was gone for a period of time, but looks like
    it's back now. I assume that's something to do with NIFC and not something
    that caltopo has control over.
