  1. Provide legend for Vegetation Trends map

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

      • Program doesn't auto update

        On my android device the map does not auto update after a period of time. If you look at the page after a break it says "logging you back in" but doesn't update the page. In my opinion this is a serious flaw.
        Otherwise this is a great resorce.

        • NOAA imagery geo-referencing problem

          NOAA Imagery seems to be incorrectly geo-referenced today (12 Jan 2015), in relation to the standard base map. When attempting to plot NOAA image 03:40 N15 from Crib Point (86656), Port Phillip Bay (near Melbourne) appears in southern NSW, i.e the image is several hundred km too far north. Both band 3 and band 5 have this problem. MODIS Imagery looks fine, and yesterday's NOAA files look OK, just seems to be a problem for today's NOAA images.

          • Access to SLIP public

            Loading SLIP public maps and imagery asks for a password. As I apparently don't have one for this server cancelling out of this goes into a near continuous loop

                  • The "PRINT" functionn does not appear to be functioning

                    This may be related to a DPAW access issue or an updtae but have had no luck for about 4 months.
                    The system is great otherwise and very useful for our fire management purposes in the past

                    • Check vegetation extent layers...they are incorrect!

                      Hi Guys,

                      Great work on the new GUI but it seems the vegetation extent layers aren't linked to the correct datasets. 2013 looks like 1990 and 2012 doesn't display at all (where I was looking in metro area anyway). 2010 and the rest all look the same too which all do not match the vegetation change maps or the Google Earth base map.

                      Please check and update!

                      Also I'm not sure whether the download button is suppose to work for these veg extent and change layers but it throws an error and doesn't work.

                      Cheers,

                      Andrew

                        • look at different presentation methods...

                          look at the CFA website for Victoria and some of the iPad apps such as "Vic Fires" these provide quick, up to date and easy to read info on fires and fire activity. The website in its current format is far too cumbersome and academic.

                          Regards

                          • move then location of the fire watch text at top of page

                            When I try click on the two arrows to get to the legend ect, I accidentally press the fire watch logo and it takes me all the way back to the home page and is annoying to log in again when this happenes.

                                  • Use plotted weather data

                                    As the overlays of Bureau observations obscure the underlying hotspots use of conventional weather observations plots would be more compact and reduce this blockage. The plots are easy to learn for those not familiar with them

                                      We are currently tracking a fire in the western end of the Carnarvon Range and it is confusing because it only shows the last three days. It would be nice to track the progress of the fire...
