As megafires in the Southwest are becoming the new normal, NPR reports in a five-part series. An interactive map by Matt Stiles, Stephanie D'Otreppe and Brian Boyer provides a daily update on burning conditions across the country.
Very clean and clear heatmap.
I wonder how they are automatically generating the heatmap every time interval.
The only mapbox + heatmap discussion I know of:
Doesn’t lend itself to such an automated process.
KML -> GeoTiff -> Tile layer ?
Or can they go directly from KML -> Tile layer automatically?
I hear there’s a nerd post in the works, but from @stiles: “A script grabs the shp files, processes them with TileMill on a server, and then uploads the tiles to MapBox.”
awesome. Nice find. Should be interesting to hear how they are automating the tilemill processing.
I wouldn’t call it interactive per se. You can zoom in and out, and scroll. Would be nice to be able to click to get more information on a location.
