NOAA-AVHRR Fire Hotspots
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) satellites have a common sensor on-board called the Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR).Fires are mapped from these thermal layers of the satellite image. When compared to its surroundings a fire is seen on the image as an area of extraordinarily high temperature, commonly called a fire hotspot (FHS). The margin of error for the spatial location of a FHS is about +/- 1km.
