In an effort to make more resources and data available to the community in regards to the San Diego fires we’ve uploaded a decent chunk of data to GeoCommons. We are tagging all the data with “San Diego fire” and will be updating GeoCommons as more data becomes available. We’ll also be putting together a separate page with data mashups and useful context about the fires, as the situation evolves. If anyone has GeoRSS, KML, or shapefiles they would like to share with the community please feel free to upload them into GeoCommons and tag them with “San Diego fire”.

Below is a quick list of data we’ve uploaded into GeoCommons related to the fires. *you can download the data without having an account but if you want to make a map with the data you’ll need to create an account and login*
