i have been working on this satelite image for the last hour or so between other things, this is roughly center of vic with the majority of fires have hit

i will edit it properly later with more accurate detail, this was just a quicky to give people an idea.

due to all the cfa and dse sites being down all the time and not updating in the right spots i thought i would do one my self as i have gathered all the data needed to plot the image on the places which have been effected by the fires and the areas which are still burning now

it will take me a few more hours to get it done but have to get back to work now so this is just a quick edit i moked up to give you an idea

the detailed version of this sat image i made was 330mb so you can imagine the detail and why it took me so long, this is a reduced quality image and a rough edit of the areas of fires so people can understand how large it is.

later ill edit the fire areas in accurate detail with all the info i have gathered and upload the full image to a server, the full image at 100% res is 10,000pxl by 8000pxl so its a big one.

ill also edit the names of all the major towns effected

My condolences goes out to everyone involved with the fires both fighting the fires and those who have lost possessions and loved ones.

 

It certainly is a huge tragedy that I hope those responsible are given the justice they deserve – Death.

 

Unfortunately the worse part is yet to come…clean up and rebuilding what has been lost.

 

Keep safe everyone down there!
