16 An internet mapping tool that displays near-real time active fires using data from the MODIS Rapid Response System - developed to serve active fire data to the broader natural resource management community for whom accessing and processing satellite data is costly and time consuming - displays active fire data approx 4 hours after the satellite over pass. Four daily fire observations. - customized interactive maps can be viewed and queried for selected regions and countries - by combining active fire data with local information (such as protected areas and settlements) you can get an overview of fire activity in your area

17 What is new? New Interface More maps Checkbox list of available layers Fires displayed as polygons 48 hour and 7 day fire files Data base of active fires from 2000 Aqua and Terra color coded Missing data pop up FAQ and Help files on line Products Executable files for importing active fire text files (from ftp site) in to ESRI GIS products
