#Inciweb FTP Wildfire Data Pull

A shell script for pulling up-to-date shapefiles from Inciweb's FTP and converting to GEOjson variables

download from NIFC ftp with curl using the list of links from wildfireDownloadList.txt

for i in `cat wildfireDownloadList.txt` ; do curl -O $i ; done

Move to a sperate folder to stay organized

cd nwcc_ftp_shapefiles/

Timestamps any previous fire data to create an archive

DATE=$(date +%Y%m%d%H)
mv "NWCC_POLY_DAILY.geojson" "NWCC_POLY_DAILY"_$DATE.geojson

Converts the .shp into a GEOjson with ogr2ogr (GDAL)

ogr2ogr -f GeoJSON -t_srs crs:84 NWCC_POINT_DAILY.geojson NWCC_POINT_DAILY.shp
ogr2ogr -f GeoJSON -t_srs crs:84 NWCC_POLY_DAILY.geojson NWCC_POLY_DAILY.shp

Turns the GEOjson into a variable to be read by leaflet.js

echo 'var fires = ' | cat - NWCC_POINT_DAILY.geojson > temp && mv temp NWCC_POINT_DAILY.geojson
echo 'var perimeters = ' | cat - NWCC_POLY_DAILY.geojson > temp && mv temp NWCC_POLY_DAILY.geojson

Remove shapefiles

rm $(<../removeShapefiles.txt)

Remove JSON files older than 10 Days

find nwcc_ftp_shapefiles/ -mtime +10 -type f -delete
