    • Export Hotspots to shape incorrect nomenclature

      when exporting hotspots to a shape file there ends up with an extra ".shp" string before the file extension eg layer..xxx...shp.shp and layer ...xxx...shp.dbf

        • gps coordinates to phone

          I can see it is possible to extract GPS coordinates for a particular hotspot. It would be great to have a one click option to send this quickly to a phone (apple maps or google map).

          I would use FireWatch to pinpoint hotspots, and then using my phone quickly travel to any hotspots to check them out in our area.

          • Flood planning

            would it be at all possible to have a simulator similar to Aurora for flooding?... storm tides etc?

              • Where have all the images gone for 2016 and most of 2015.

                I use this website regularly and why do we have to contact you to get this addressed. Does someone keep an eye on the website to make sure all is working?

                • Query re Sat Image Services

                  Hey, Love the service but I've noticed fewer Modis and VIIRS passes particularly along the east coast which is my area of interest. There still seems to be several images of WA areas which I know is always your core area but a couple of times over the last two weeks there has been virtually no imagery available for a 24 hour period which is unusual. Is anything happening in this space that has caused less imagery to be made available?

                  Cheers

                  • Better Fire up-dates?

                    Victoria Alps area: 070316 0912 hrs,Currently clear skies, Fire Wenworth , "Elliots Track 19Klm west of Swifts Creek.
                    Wenworth, Mill Track fire, 18Klm west of Swift Creek.
                    Dargo, Friday Spur, 17.5Klm east of Dargo.

                    Maybe the Fires were not detectable???

                    • Please keep Hotspot information visible until after a fire event is fully resolved.

                      Knowing what has already been burned is vital for understanding both areas still at risk, and knowing where (safer) access and escape routes are.

                      • The scolling and zooming does not work well on Android mobile devices

                        the lagging is such that the program frequently overshoots and zooms out to cover the whole world or zooms into an area away from the intended target. This is very frustrating and needs to be sorted. The problem affects all versions and slow connections (such as away from metro) make it worse.

                        • page designed for mobiles or tablets

                          I have only just found Fire Watch,
                          I have been looking for an "app" that gives as close as possible to real time updates, with actual locations. ...not regions or districts. Fire Watch seems to tick the boxes.

                          But out on the property I don't have access to a full sized computer.
                          A tablet or mobile phone is the usual way to make a quick check....I understand that you can't fit as much info on a small screen & contro's get fiddly.
                          But something that shows fire location at a glance - perhaps with options that are set up on…

                            • Get Access to Himiwari 8 Data

                              Hey, Great product you have and love your work. Any word on when Himiwari 8 data will be available and if it will be available though your service. A lot of people in my work place (National Parks) are keen on the idea of real time 10 minute updates that seem to be getting promised in media reports but I'm guessing data transfer, correction and processing will still take a couple of hours? Any crumbs you could throw to the hungry wolves would be appreciated.

                                Is there a way to get the more Landsat data? The imagery available only goes to 2013!

                                      Nice colours. Unfortunately I have no idea what it means as there is not a lgend nor any metadata.

                                      • Use greyscale base image for vegetation history map product

                                        Great idea. But draping a transparent colour thematic map over a colour air photo is hard to interpret for some areas (i.e. forest), especially if you are looking for the 'green' colour coding over the green national park forest (e.g. Boranup). How about using greyscale for the air phot instead?

                                          I am having issues exporting the yearly NOAA Burnt Area data to Google Earth as a KML file. Can this be rectified?
