 This project aims to map burnt areas within NSW in a way that is useful for bushwalkers. When vegetation is burnt in a bushfire, it generally removes scrub and makes the area easier to travel through for a few years. Knowing where these recently burnt areas are can then assist in route planning for bushwalks. This project aims to map burnt areas within NSW in a way that is useful for bushwalkers.

 +===== To Do ===== 
 +  * Investigate RFS RSS Feed data 
 +    * It appears that they supply multiple feeds relating to fires 
 +    * Their [[http://​www.rfs.nsw.gov.au/​feeds/​majorIncidents.json|Current Incidents Feed (GeoJSON)]] feed appears to be a geojson file of all current fires, which includes points or polygons 
 +    * See if it's worth collecting this data on a regular basis (say weekly) and then compiling into one big database for reference and / or later analysis
