Wisconsin Wildfire & Air Quality Maps

Fire and Smoke Maps of Wisconsin 

The AirNow Fire and Smoke Map provide an interactive display of data regarding ground-level air quality monitors. It specifically focuses on measuring fine particulates (PM2.5) resulting from smoke and other sources. Additionally, the map offers information on fires, the location of smoke plumes, and special statements issued by various sources regarding smoke conditions.

AirNow utilizes the official U.S. Air Quality Index (AQI) to report air quality levels. This index employs a color-coded system to effectively convey whether the air quality is healthy or unhealthy.

The development of this map is a collaborative endeavor involving the U.S. Forest Service's Interagency Wildland Fire Air Quality Response Program (IWFAQRP) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The University of Washington's School of Environmental and Forest Sciences played a significant role in the development process through a formal agreement.
