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!
Have a craving for one of those Shamrock Shakes for St. Patrick’s Day? They will be around until March 24, so hurry and go find one using the Shamrock Shake Locator!
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Enjoy this year’s Christmas Card Map! -mike

I thought of using a title for this post like “He Totally Messed Up The Map And You Won’t Believe What Happened Next” just to get you to click, but I settled for the one above instead! 😀
Now that I have your attention…
If you are using GIS in a city or county government in Los Angeles County or Orange County and you have a public web site for your GIS maps and apps, please help me out!
Please check the SoCalGIS Resources page and make sure that the link to your city or county web site is correct. If the URL has changed or your site is missing from the list, please let me know via email.
And if you have other resources you use that you think would be a good idea to have on the SoCalGIS site, let me know about that too!
