Newly released maps comprised of 360-degree visualizations and before-and-after comparison photos captured by drones survey a little more than a quarter of the area scorched by the CZU Lightning Complex Fire in August.

The Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Office worked with the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office, Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office and Stockton Police to deploy 15 drone teams that made over 315 flights to collect the photos, panoramas and videos.

Using the CAL FIRE damage assessment map for reference, the teams collected imagery over 23,000 acres — or 35 square miles — of the 86,509 acres burned over 37 days in Santa Cruz and San Mateo counties. The 650 images focus on most of the damaged areas of Boulder Creek, Bonny Doon and Davenport, the communities hardest-hit by the blaze.
