AFIS gives you access to the latest wild fire locations, fire danger forecasts, historical fire reports and much more:
  • Today's fire danger index displayed on a map for locations you define, including your current location.
  • Fire danger forecasts based on daily numerical weather forecast inputs (e.g. wind speed, air temperature, relative humidity) and fire statistics for your locations, or wherever you drop a pin on the map.
  • Satellite-detected real-time active fires displayed around your defined locations.
  • Current vegetation “curing” or dryness relative to 13 years of satellite-derived vegetation greenness data.
  • Detailed information about detected fires (e.g. intensity and time of detection).
  • Fire history showing a location's fire events in the last 13 years in relation to historical vegetation curing using graphs, as well as statistics such as fire count, frequency and time since last burn.
  • A fire danger calculator which allows anyone with access to weather information to calculate their own fire danger ratings based on their local measurements.
  • Share observations of fire with the community by uploading geotagged photos to the AFIS Web Viewer.
  • A global map of fire counts for the last 13 years.
