After reading a suggestion on the edhat comment board, Scanner Andrew created a comprehensive map of brush fires in the Santa Barbara South Coast over the past few years.

"I thought it was a good idea to create a map displaying all of the fires in Santa Barbara and Goleta since August 2021. All of the points show confirmed vegetation fires, linked with edhat articles. Please note that there may be more fires since August 2021 than shown. Red points are fires from 2021, blue points are fires from 2022. They are also grouped by month," Andrew said.

Edhat agreed this is a great idea and has now added "Fire Map" to the main menu under the "News" tab to directly link to this article and map.

BIG thank you to Scanner Andrew for taking the initiative to put this together and keep the community informed.

The expanded can be viewed here and an embedded version is below.

This is a great idea, but it sure seems like there is a fire EVERY DAY at one of the bum zones. Why not just make one layer that is all of 2022, it would give a more realistic picture than separating out by month.

I liked it grouped by month because it allows people to deselect other months (layers) and only look at the fires that occurred in one specific month.

Caltrans needs to do something with other officials look at the fires all along the freeway people shouldn’t be allowed near the freeway to camp

Another thing to add: Unfortunately there's only a limit of 10 layers on the map, so once we're in June I'll have to remove the August month layer and replace it with June.

Amazing! This is the one of the great things about edhat. A suggestion is made and another person puts it together to better the community. Great job everyone!
