Fire Information for Resource Management System (FIRMS)
Published: Mar 10, 2015 at 11:30 PM EDT
FIRMS delivers global hotspots / fire locations in easy to use formats
FIRMS distributes Near Real-Time active fire data within 3 hours of satellite overpass from both MODIS and VIIRS.
MODIS Active Fire Products
New: Collection 6 now available - what's new? The MODIS NRT active fire products (MCD14DL) are processed using the standard MOD14/MYD14 Fire and Thermal Anomalies product. Each MODIS active fire location represents the center of a 1km pixel that is flagged by the algorithm as containing one or more fires within the pixel. To give users time to migrate to Collection 6, Collection 5 data will continue to be available for the next six months.
VIIRS Active Fire Products
New: The VIIRS NRT 375 m active fire products (VNP14IMGTDL_NRT) complements MODIS fire detections but the improved spatial resolution of the 375 m data provides a greater response over fires of relatively small areas.The 375 m data also has improved nighttime performance. More...
Please note, in an effort to standardize VIIRS file names, the short name for VIIRS NRT 375 m product has been changed from VNP14IMGT to VNP14IMGTDL_NRT (updated 18 April 2016).
