Calfornia Wildfire TV Coverage Mapping Test

As an experiment, I have been trying to map the location of various live shots as they appear on the local Los Angeles television stations. It isn't easy, as they rarely give anything but the most vague indications of where they are located. That said, I was able to locate 3 areas fairly quickly as they were presented.

This is a test on my part to try and give an example of what I would like to see in California Wildfire Coverage (What is needed in California wildfire news coverage...more information!)

I would love to see info like this overlaid on live TV shots so we could all have a better idea of the location of the fires and proximity to homes.
