The map has the ability to create multiple layers covering different topics such as precipitation and evaporation, water flow velocity and temperature, land use change or even conservation efforts. For example, if you wanted to find out whether a particular area was impacted by climate change induced drought then simply switch on the ‘water flow’ layer to see how this might affecting the local ecosystem. This type of information can have significant implications for local communities who rely on these resources for their livelihoods and wellbeing.
If a pattern identified, links to other similar incidents can provided to support suspected causes or to provide context for new findings. It essential that this process complete before linking to previously reported fires; if differences found between the current report and previous ones, the new investigation may have found a different cause of the fire than previously noted.
