Wildfire Hazard Maps

    Residents in Anchorage, Fairbanks and Whitehorse, Yukon can explore wildfire hazards in their communities using these maps developed by the AURA project. The maps illustrate the potential for wildfire risk based on the ability of vegetation to carry a fire and throw embers.  The underlying vegetation is from Landsat imagery (30m) from the NASA ABoVE program.

    For more information about these maps and additional technical documents, visit this Wildfire Exposure site created by AURA researcher Jen Schmidt.
