UPDATE August 4: Updated maps are now available. Click here to go to the August 4 versions.


Original post: We’ve heard a lot of readers asking for detailed maps of the areas affected by fires, so we’ve put together this post that is filled with ridiculously detailed maps. These are the most recent maps available (Timestamps can be found in the corners of the PDF’s).

Located at the bottom of this post are thumbnails of the detailed PDF maps. In order to see the PDF’s full size, click the thumbnail and the PDF will open in your browser (assuming your computer hasn’t blocked popups from opening). It may take a few seconds for the maps to load, so give it some time.

For a much more immersive, 3D-type experience, we have a download set up for our readers who have Google Earth installed on their devices. Click this link for the Google Earth map. (Give it some time to download.)

For those of you who don’t feel comfortable downloading the file, there’s also this link that works with Google Maps (This one isn’t a download).

If you have any thoughts, questions or technical difficulties, let us know in the comment section.

Update 2:31 p.m.: Here’s a link to a new map of the Mad River Complex on InciWeb.
