Viewer of the latest fires detected in the world


The active fire map is a service offered and produced by NASA FIRMS based on data collected by satellites. The information captured is processed quickly and made available to the public in a few hours. With all this, we can know in a fairly objective way the approximate place where a fire point has occurred and its magnitude.
