Dear Sir: If you put a map in your article and it has boxes, one in purple and one in red, don't you think it might be good to at least tell your reader what the difference is between red and purple? I count on KPBS for real information, but sorry to say this time you came up short. Matt in Rancho Penesquitos

The evacuation area can be viewed on the county's emergency map: http://www.arcgis.com/home/webmap/viewer.html?webmap=26f7674a2ad744f3806af0c426531951

which is listed in the article and off the main story on the home page.

Thank you, ronningm!!

I made this same point on a story just the other day:

KPBS should be mindful to include all maps and charts used have a key so they can be properly read.

Purple = Evacuation Notification Areas
Red = Fire Perimeter

See, was that so hard?

Eddie89 - thanks for the info.

I used to live in SD and still have family and friends there and was wondering what was closed or burnt as well. It was difficult to find any "maps" of fire areas and I'm glad KPBS put the info out there - even for those of us who don't live there. Hope the rain comes and the fires are put out soon!

Eddie: The point is not how hard or not it is to look up the info., the point is that it's good journalistic practice to include all necessary keys/data within a map/chart/graph so one can gain the necessary information from viewing the image as opposed to one having to look at said image and then go to another source to be able to properly interpret it.

I've seen several cases of this in KPBS articles, an outlet I respect for good journalism, I just hope they will pay attention to this matter in the future.

It's sloppy otherwise.

The "See, was that so hard?" was actually directed at KPBS news article writers. I should have been more clear.

Purple = Evacuation Notification Areas
Red = Fire Perimeter

See, was that so hard, KPBS news writers?
