Robert, in a comment on our earlier thread, "Map of Tea Fire From Television", said:
I just posted this morning's thermal IR imagery- http://www.fireimaging.com/homepage.htmlThanks Robert. For those not familiar with infrared imagery, it is not exactly a map, but is a plot of heat detected this morning by sensors on an aircraft. Trained infrared interpreters can take this imagery and draw the perimeter of the fire on a map.
The resolution of the "map" is not great but you can almost see where houses are in the Santa Barbara and Montecito areas.
Very cool. Thanks Robert.
