Filtering and Viewing Fire Information in FTEM

In addition to the search field, there are two methods to filter wildfires and view additional fire information:

  3. Clicking on a fire will show fire metadata in the right hand panel.

Filter or Get More Information from the Map

Once you have zoomed into your area, you may want to further constrain the results with a specific filter term, or use some of the available FTEM Reference layers to aid in your monitoring. We'll cover these option here:

Important! Constraining the attribute table does not change the list that populates on the right of the screen until you use the "Zoom To" option to change the map extent.

Using a Filter in Attribute Table

For this example we will search for fire polygons with a point of origin jurisdiction of Nez Perce - Clearwater National Forest:

  1. Click Attribute Table button in the bottom right of the map.

    The 'Attribute Table' button on the bottom right of the map.

  2. Use your mouse cursor to set the approximate extent of your area, the attribute table automatically populates based upon visible map extent.
  3. Click the layer displayed along the top of the table that corresponds with your search, in this example "Wildfires: Poly (Year 2018)" is selected.
  4. Click Options and select Filter.

    use the filter option to further constrain your attribute table.

  5. Create your filter expression and click OK. In this example we use "poo_jurisdiction is IDNCF", for querying the table for Point Of Origin Jurisdiction of Nez Perce - Clearwater National Forest (IDNCF).
    • Need to look up the jurisdiction code for your area? Download the Jurisdiction Look-up CSV.
    • We recommend including a date constraint in your custom filter. This is because the automatic "Wildfires Year" filter above the "Pick Wildfires" tab is disabled when custom filters are created.

      This constrains the table to attributes that match your search results.

    Use the filter to create expressions to query the attribute table.

  6. To zoom to a record, select it by clicking the gray area to the left of the attribute row and use the Zoom To option.

    select a record and click 'zoom to' to zoom to it on the map.
