Viewer of the latest fires detected in the world

 

The active fire map is a service offered and produced by NASA based on data collected by the Terra satellite. This space detector carries with it a sensor called MODIS that captures the infrared radiation emitted by any fire. The information collected is treated very 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 the fire occurred and the magnitude of it. More information in:
