Global Forest Watch (GFW) Fires

By Blue Raster LLC

Solution details




Produced in partnership with the World Resources Institute, the recently updated Global Forest Watch Fires (GFW Fires) is an online platform for monitoring and responding to forest and land fires using near-real-time information. GFW Fires empowers people to better respond to harmful fires before they burn out of control, holding accountable those who may have burned forests illegally. With the most recent release of GFW Fires, users can explore fire events for every country around the world over the last five years — using two sensor products: VIIRS and MODIS. Fire history, cumulative fires to date, and a statistical analysis by administrative boundaries allow great insight into fire events within a country or around the world.
