Starting July 2020, clients will be moved to the New Incident Mapping Capabilities. The wildfire symbols and related data (schema) align with the National Incident Feature Service.
The purpose of this article is to provide users who have a role with access to adding and editing incidents a quick start for users transitioning to the new 'schema'.
Below is a common Incident Mapping Workflow for initial and extended attack fires with a description of how this is accomplished using the new capabilities.
As in the past, be sure the the layers you want to map are turned on in the layers menu. Now, these are Manage the Incident, Manage Information and Access, and Manage Wildfire.
Now that you are set up:
- First add the incident point - Select Manage the Incident > Fire Incident. to add and incident to the map. As in the past, add the point to the maps and add or select a nearby IRWIN incident name.
- Add a fire perimeter - Manage Wildfire > Event Polygon > Wildfire Daily Fire Perimeter.
- Add Division Breaks, Staging, ICP, etc - Manage Wildfire > Event Point > choose desired point.
- Label Divisions - Manage Wildfire > Label Point.
Once added, be sure add the label text AND select the label type as Division.
Finally - Access, escape routes, evacuation areas are part of Map Information and Access.
NOTE: There are two versions of the Wildfire features available for clients to choose from - full and initial attack. If you are uncertain what your system has, you can compare your available features with the symbol reference linked below.
