FROM THE USDA FOREST SERVICE: The Active Fire Mapping Program is an operational, satellite-based fire detection and monitoring program managed by the USDA Forest Service Remote Sensing Applications Center (RSAC) located in Salt Lake City, Utah. The Active Fire Mapping program provides near real-time detection and characterization of wildland fire conditions in a geospatial context for the continental United States, Alaska, Hawaii and Canada. Detectable fire activity across all administrative ownerships in the United States and Canada are mapped and characterized by the program.

High temporal image data collected by the NASA’s Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) are currently the primary remote sensing data source of this program. MODIS provides multiple daily observations of the United States and Canada, which is ideal for continuous operational monitoring and characterization of wildland fire activity. To minimize product latency and deliver fire geospatial products as quickly as possible to the user community, the program leverages state of the art technologies to acquire image data directly from orbiting spacecraft. The program leverages these technologies and partnerships with other collectors of MODIS satellite data to facilitate near real-time data coverage for the entire United States and Canada.

Satellite image data are continually relayed to RSAC, integrated, and processed to produce imagery and science data products. These products are processed and analyzed with current fire intelligence information and other key geographic strata provided by U.S. and Canadian fire management agencies. The results are a suite of "value-added" geospatial products that provide an accurate and current assessment of current fire activity, fire intensity, burned area extent and smoke conditions throughout the U.S. and Canada. Products provided by the program include fire mapping and visualization products, fire detection GIS datasets and live data services, multi-spectral image subsets, and analytical products/summaries.

The near real-time fire products provided by the Active Fire Mapping program provide critical, timely and comprehensive fire data and information, are highly integrated into the daily fire management business of the inter-agency fire community, and support several inter-agency fire management objectives and decision support applications. Additionally, the program also generates and distributes several additional MODIS land and atmosphere products to support multi-disciplinary uses.
