July 4th is just around the corner, which means there will be fireworks again!
Use the app to view cities in LA, Orange, Ventura, Riverside, and San Bernardino County that allow the sale and discharge of fireworks. Included are days and times when fireworks will be sold and when you can light them up, as well as links to city websites and telephone numbers. Data was collected from municipal codes, websites, and/or contacting each city. Some cities allow sales to start today AND allow you to discharge them today as well! Check it out!
The standard slope tool in ArcGIS Desktop only examines a 3×3 cell neighborhood (and does not include the center cell) to determine slope for each cell. However, using Python you can create a method for calculating slope along a flow direction grid specific to your needs. Check out this article about using Python to calculate a fire “flow direction” based on a DEM and fire lines.
