    As of 2014, there are 800 million iOS users and 1 billion Andriod users. How about a version for the majority of mobile platforms!?

    I have the same question as Chris Barney does.

    What is the source of the “real-time information”… specifically who is supplying the active fire perimeter, and how often? Is it from firefighters on the ground, or from the district’s fire station, or from a FOBS, or from the Situation Unit on a large fire, or determined nightly via analyzing the remotely-sensed imagery…?

    GCS Research in Missoula released an (Android/iPad) app several years ago called “Active Wildland Fires”. Using backgrounds from ESRI’s ArcGIS Online, the app displays daily perimeters from GeoMAC (which are submitted by Situation Units on team fires).

    I’m trying to understand how the two apps compare, and if one is truly “REAL-TIME”, what is the source of the real-time info. Thankyou.

    @Chris, Scott, and Dwk. We are working hard to have a Android version of this application. We will put our heads down during off fire season to get this finalized.

    @styxfire: The hotpin is a trademark data source from wildlandfire.com. As you are aware the intel on this site is pretty darn “real-time”. It is 5-18 hours faster regarding the “where” of the fire in comparison to GeoMac, CalFire, and Inciweb. Once the hotpin is dropped the perimeter typically populates hours after. The MODIS thermals are from satellite and will update once the sat orbits over.

    The link to the app doesn’t work anymore and I can’t find it in the app store. Has the app been taken down?
