Fire information from space at your fingertips

We launched a new website called provides Earth Observation based services to the fire management and climate mitigation communities. supports fire management planning through information on burned area, fuel consumption, biomass burned and emissions of greenhouse gases and particulate matter, as well as on the timing of the fires. This information is derived from burned area datasets and from observations of the burning fires through infrared sensors and presented in interactive maps in the web. We have also started a blog at about selected current fire events.
Enjoy playing with our sample maps, e.g. on South Africa and stay tuned for more to come.
The next event with is the GIStalk conference.
