Shape files of active fire data for the last 24 and 48 hours, and 7 days. For more information, please see the SHP README (PDF).
Keyhole Markup Language of active fire data for the last 24 hours and 48 hours. An auto-updating KML is also available for visualization of the active fire/hotspot detections for most parts of the world for the last 24 hours. The KML automatically refreshes every 2 hours and downloads the latest available MODIS active fire/hotspot detections. For more information, please see the KML README (PDF).
If you have Google Earth installed, you can open the KML directly or you can save it to your local disk for later viewing.
Text files, in CSV format, of the active fire data for the last 24 and 48 hours, and 7 days are available below. Daily text files for the last two months are available via FTP. To keep file sizes to a minimum, the data are provided by region. For more information, please see the TXT README (PDF).
