SpatialKey’s Wildfire App integrates with GeoMAC by utilizing their wildfire perimeters to help users quickly locate locations of interest near active or historic wildfires. In some cases, GeoMAC does not publish perimeters for fires, or they may not be available right away. This informal video demonstrates how to consume GeoMAC’s WMS services directly in SpatialKey Analyst to do more ad-hoc analysis.

The following URLs are referenced in the video:

  • The ArcGIS Services Directory for the GeoMAC dynamic map service: http://wildfire.cr.usgs.gov/ArcGIS/rest/services/geomac_dyn/MapServer
  • The actual WMS service interface that you’d paste into the WMS layer feature in the Map Layer Manager: http://rmgsc.cr.usgs.gov/ArcGIS/services/geomac_dyn/MapServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS
