Amazing app - Exactly what I need

Wow, it is an amazing app!!! Finally an aggregated source to zoom in on a specific fire, or track what's happening in California and across the country, all in one place.

I have been looking for something like this, definitely a keeper on my iphone. Easy to use, keep me informed, as we head into the wildfire season.

Looks good

It shows a lot of information on the whole continent regarding fires. My only complaint so far is that the legend is incomplete. There are a lot of icons on the map (various encircled numbers) But there’s no mention of what they indicate. At first I thought it was the number of active fires in an area, then I thought perhaps the county’s numerical identifier…I have nor idea & there doesn't seem to be anywhere to find this information in the apps site.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the feedback. To clarify: the numbers do represent total fires in the area. Orange ones are human-reported fires, purple ones are satellite-detected fires.

Love the app but needs more

I love this app-it provides some peace of mind during this very scary season. I wish it had a few more features though-I would like to know current rate of spread, direction of travel, and acres burnt. There is a huge difference in level of concern when these things are taken into consideration

Developer Response ,

Thank you for the feedback. We're constantly expanding the data shown in Firespot. Although we don't yet show wind direction, we do show current satellite-detected hotspots. This can be really useful for showing which part of a fire's perimeter is actively burning/spreading.
