Burning eyes, runny nose, and hazy skies indicate that it’s wildfire season. Steer clear of smokey, polluted air on your next adventure with three brand new Smoke Forecast maps. Smoke Forecast (today), Smoke Forecast (24h), and Smoke Forecast (48h) give you a sense of smoke levels all over the continental U.S. for today, tomorrow, and an entire weekend. All three maps are free for Gaia GPS users. Learn how to use them to make informed decisions in the backcountry.
In response to the wildfires ravaging the country, we’ve made wildfire and air quality maps available and free for everyone on gaiagps.com (and soon to the mobile app, too). Now you can readily track the size of wildfires, new fires that have just popped up, and air quality index wherever you live or plan to travel.
Plan hikes and runs—and estimate just how good the views are going to be—with the new EPA Air Quality forecast maps in Gaia GPS. You can view current estimated levels of pollutants with the Air Quality (Current) overlay, or take a look at upcoming levels with the Air Quality (Tomorrow) overlay.
