Canadian Fire and Forest Databases

I ran across these links to Canadian fire and forest info, and thought they were pretty interesting. You can break them down by province, source of ignition, and so on. Of course, everything from BC to PEI is in the combined statistics. I wonder what the data would show if it were arrayed as “forest fires of similar vegetation types across western North America? Maybe someone’s done that.

Here’s the link to the fire info in the Forestry Database (which has a variety of other interesting info, including forest products prices, that you can find from this dashboard).

Here’s a link to the Canadian National Fire Database. This shows some of the reports you can play with.
