    Smokey Bear Fire forecaster

    Post by JacquesD » Sun 19 May 2013 4:13 pm

    Hi,

    Someone told me about Chandler Burning Index earlier this year, so I've checked
    what this is about and found that there is some fire risk system available: CBI, FWI,
    Angstrom, etc. Then I've done a little draft,

    see: http://weatherbyyou.com/demo/weather_su ... Danger.php

    Comments are welcome! :D

    Regards,
    Jacques

    Jacques,
    That's great idea I think. This is something directly related to the weather and useful for almost every weather station (maybe except of those located in Alaska and Greenland :) ).

    Hi Jacques
    any possibility that you can add an explanation to this
    FFMC DMC DC ISI BUI FWI CBI

    Maybe some small question mark that guides you to some page that contains a short explanation of it.

    Hi Kenneth,

    For sure, there will be a complete explanation page.
    This module will be made of 2 parts; 1st the "sticker"
    to display only essential and when visitors will click on "sticker"
    they will be redirected to this "detailed" page with graphs,
    tables and explanation needed!

    Regards,
    Jacques

    Hi Jacques,
    Sorry for asking you this question (it's a vacation time and probably you may have a lot much more important thinks to do) :oops: but: Do you have any idea of when the final version will be available?
    I'm not living in Alaska (not in Greenland either) and it would be useful to have it before the first snowfall. :lol:

    Let me just add I'm interested also as I live in an area that has had many forest fires this season (Colorado) :( plus those in surrounding states of New Mexico, Arizona, etc... I'm sure would also be interested. ;)

    Maybe in a month, I'm about to finish something else... and bear is next!

    Hi Beau,

    With summer, projects are taking the "slow" road! 8-)
    (and since I work in a school, september is pretty buzzy)
    I've worked a lot on this project, but it become much complex too!

    As you can see on this link, a configuration page is added. It give some "Fire historic"
    by reading monthly file supplied, so no site will have an empty graph or table view
    for its "Day 1".

    You could try with your own month file on this link:
    http://weatherbyyou.com/demo/weather_su ... Config.php

    I'm now on "numbers validation" to be sure that Fire forecasts will be accurate!
    This module will be a 5-in-1 enhancement with its:
    - 3 different "Fire Sticker" (2 small and 1 medium size) to choose from
    - 1 standard page with big Smockey images and graphs
    - 1 explanation page with a lot of information on index and Fire Risk calculations
    ... Without forgetting installation/configuration page I'm working on!

    But, I've readed a lot of "scientific stuff" about these indexes and found that they produce forecasts
    at noon, as the warmest time of the day! But, on my site, noon is rarely the hottest moment of the day...
    its around 4pm instead. So, I think about producing 2 forecasts (demo page show them):
    - Forecast at official "noon time"
    - Forecast at the hottest moment of the day, so far.

    Then, as you see, work on its road, but some choixes still to do!

    Best regards,
    Jacques

    Hi,

    I've validated indexes and worked on Configuration page
    to have something simple to run.

    So, you could now try it with your own month file and
    see what will compose that "Smokey Bear module".

    When you visit this link: http://weatherbyyou.com/demo/weather_su ... Danger.php

    Prototype will see no (Fire) data file, so will guide you to configuration.

    I've tried to do something simple... so give it a try!

    Regards,
    Jacques

    Hi!

    Smokey Bear project still to continue its development, probably my longest project! :|
    Now, main Fire Danger page has a working "Danger sign" at top, with Fire Risk Index,
    temp, humidity and consecutive days without rain.

    Also, graph is in its near final status, with interactive control over the data
    to select Hum, Temp, etc. and zoom in the period displayed. Finally, Legend
    has been enhanced to show more informations.

    Link: http://weatherbyyou.com/demo/weather_su ... Danger.php

    Configuration page has been enhanced too, installations steps are now given
    on how to "call" main FireDanger and all (3) Fire stickers available.
