BlueSky Daily Run Viewer

BlueSky Daily Run Viewer (aka "Websky")

This tool provides a visualization of results from a wide array of daily smoke model prediction runs, particularly the BlueSky based smoke model runs done by USFS-AirFire. Additional runs done by NOAA (the High Resolution Rapid Refresh model, HRRR-Smoke), and Environment and Climate Change Canada (FIREWORK), are also available through this viewer courtesy of these organizations.

Users can view on a map and/or download for use in Google Earth. Information on fire and emissions information is available through pop-ups.
