Chandler burn index
« on: October 13, 2012, 11:29:22 AM »
I've noticed that some of the other web sites have fire danger (based on-the chandler index) info on there pages

Is there any current option or future plans  for our web pages based on cumulus that will allow us to place a fire danger option ?

Jacques,

I been wondering the same thing. The only example I can give you is at http://www.frogville.us. The catch here is the site is a PHP site and I am using Weather Blues V1.

BTW, on thing I'd like to do is replace the forecast block on the main page (indexT.htm/index.htm) with a fire danger icon. The main reason being that getting an icon that is close to the desert conditions is really hard. I have added a forecast page that give me the forecasts from the National Weather Service instead of trying to guess at what the forecast should be.

Hi!

Ok! I've found something good to work on.
Also found reference to "Smokey Bear" signs.

... keep looking at!

Jacques,

I especially like the 3rd one, although they are all good. Fire Danger is always been an issue in my area, but more so this year when we've had less than 1.5" (YTD) this year. That's why I've been looking for something for my site. The Forecast icon on the main page maybe good for most areas, it is not good for here in southern Arizona which is why I think that fire danger would been a good replacement for the forecast icon in areas like here. I just wish I was a better PC programmer so I could tackle a project like this. 
 :(

Hi,

I'm about to design something I find interesting for forest fire.
... see by yourself!

Jacques,

I like... I like! Any fire danger graphic is much better with Smokey Bear in it.

Hi,

I'm working on Fire Indexes and finally found that the CBI calculation
is pretty basic, with only input of Humidity and Temperature. But there
is some other more "sophisticated" as the Fire Weather Index (FWI).
It's calculation is based on many more parameters... as the rain!!

So, I'm about to do some experimentation to offer something "strong"!
See basic CBI: http://weatherbyyou.com/demo/CBI/CBI_calc.php

Jacques, it looks really great! Considering we have been hanging around 100 with humidities around 7 to 15% and no appreciable rain since .4" since the 2nd half of February.   
 :o

Now, how do we code this? I guess it shouldn't be too hard, should it?

Hi Tom,

Oh! Burn index could be interesting for visitors when so dry, so hot!
For sure module from my site are always geared for "newbies", then
a little easy step-by-step guide will be available too!

But, in your case, you'll have to check if you can "drive" php files
as your site is html. You could do a simple test by taking one of your
site page (a plain text page) and rename it .php (ex. infos.htm to infos.php)
then, visit the page to see if it works (you have to remove .htm version
to avoid possible mix).

... CBI module should be available in the next days!

Best Regards,
Jacques

Jacques,

It is not a problem, I am running lots of php stuff with the current host under other domains. Plus I have added a couple php files to my weather site. They work fine.

Hi Jacques,

Interesting addition..!!!

When entering the image, where does the actual information (image-update) comes from (e.g in Ontario..??)
Is this Environment Canada or just like on my [Air Quality] pages (Air Quality Ontario) does it come from a different source??

Thanks,
Arthur
