Fire Radiative Power is used to measure intensity; it depicts the pixel-integrated fire radiative power in MW (megawatts). FRP provides information on the measured radiant heat output of detected fires. The amount of radiant heat energy liberated per unit...
Thanks for your query. You can obtain burned area data from MODIS (MCD65) (GeoTIFF, shape and HDF files) from http://modis-fire.umd.edu/pages/BurnedArea.php The algorithm doesn't pick up small / cool fires so that may only get you so far. You can try u...
You can download MODIS and VIIRS hotspot data (as shown in Web Fire Mapper: https://firms.modaps.eosdis.nasa.gov/firemap/) from the FIRMS archive download tool: https://firms.modaps.eosdis.nasa.gov/download/ Please note the MODIS archive is made up of st...
You can opt to receive a .CSV file for your fire email alert from FIRMS and this can be opened in EXCEL using the File / import option. See instructions below: First, save the CSV file to you computer You can open this in EXCEL using the following - ...
