dataset : NESDIS Hazard Mapping System Fire and Smoke Program


NESDIS Hazard Mapping System Fire and Smoke Program

The Satellite Services Division of NESDIS/NOAA created an interactive Web-based GIS used to display satellite data of fire detects in near-real time. It converts the data to a format compatible with ArcIMS and creates a steady flow of the data to the Web Server. The Web Server updates the data being displayed on the internet by deleting the old data and displaying new data. The analyzed fires and smoke layer are update primarily between the hours of 1 pm and 11 pm Eastern time, with occasional updates during the rest of the day. The automated layers are updated twenty-four hours a day as new satellite imagery is received. The product covers the continental United States, Alaska and Hawaii.

The spatial range for this dataset is 5.0° to 60.0° latitude, and -165.0° to -65.0° longitude. map (center)
