Fire Information for Resource Management System (FIRMS)
FIRMS distributes Near Real-Time (NRT) active fire data within 3 hours of satellite overpass from both MODIS and VIIRS.
MODIS Active Fire Products
Collection 6 has been available since September 2015. Find out more about what 's new in Collection 6? The MODIS NRT active fire products (MCD14DL) are processed using the standard MOD14/MYD14 Fire and Thermal Anomalies product. Each MODIS active fire location represents the center of a 1km pixel that is flagged by the algorithm as containing one or more fires within the pixel.
VIIRS Active Fire Products
New: The VIIRS NRT 375 m active fire products (VNP14IMGTDL_NRT) complements MODIS fire detections but the improved spatial resolution of the 375 m data provides a greater response over fires of relatively small areas.The 375 m data also has improved nighttime performance. More...
Please note, in an effort to standardize VIIRS file names, the short name for VIIRS NRT 375 m product was changed from VNP14IMGT to VNP14IMGTDL_NRT (18 April 2016).
