New Website from University of Arizona Tracks Fire and Water

The University of Arizona launched a new website that will help ranchers in more ways than one. The new site, DroughtView, will not only allow ranchers to track greener pastures, but also help determine where drought conditions may exist, in order to better deter the possibility of wildfires.

The site includes imagery of a 16-day period and has a feature where users can enter impact reports based on their own observations of plants and wildlife.  It is already utilized by a local drought impact group, environmental scientists, plant geographers, federal and state land management agents, and ranchers to help take control of unpredictable weather patterns.

Curious about how the new application works or want to use it yourself? – read more about DroughtView and the University of Arizona’s work here.
