Fire Hotspots Detection Model
This model shows the Fire Hotspots Detection Model including the vegetation detection model.
The MODIS thermal activity layer can be used to visualize and assess wildfires worldwide. However, it should be noted that this dataset contains many “false positive” (e.g., oil/natural gas wells or volcanoes) since the satellite will detect any large thermal signal.
Thermal activity detected by the MODIS sensors on the NASA Aqua and Terra satellites during the last 48 hours. This layer presents detectable thermal activity from MODIS satellites for the last 48 hours. MODIS Global Fires is a product of NASA’s Earth Observing System Data and Information System.
