Short Name:

MODIS/Aqua+Terra Thermal Anomalies/Fire locations 1km FIRMS V005 NRT

Near Real-Time (NRT) MODIS Thermal Anomalies / Fire locations processed by FIRMS (Fire Information for Resource Management System) - Land Atmosphere Near real time Capability for EOS (LANCE), using swath products (MOD14/MYD14) rather than the tiled MOD14A1 and MYD14A1 products. The thermal anomalies / active fire represent the center of a 1km pixel that is flagged by the MODIS MOD14/MYD14 Fire and Thermal Anomalies algorithm (Giglio 2003) as containing one or more fires within the pixel. This is the most basic fire product in which active fires and other thermal anomalies, such as volcanoes, are identified.MCD14DL are available in the following formats: TXT, SHP, KML, WMS. These data are also provided through the FIRMS Fire Email Alerts. Please note only the TXT and SHP files contain all the attributes.
