Evolution of fire perimeter

Evolution of Fire Perimeter


Major limitations

Major Limitations

Accuracy of fire perimeter derived from surface reflectance (near-realtime, MODIS Terra) is limited by:

  • Clouds

  • Thick Smoke

  • Geolocation accuracy

Advantages of near-real time

Here, the fire perimeter is derived from 250m (spatial resolution) data.

Current active FIRE maps, from USDA Forest Service, is available at 1 km.

MODIS fire product, MODIS MOD14, is also available at only 1 km resolution.

Accuracy of fire spread model (such as FARSITE) can be assessed using temporal evolution of fire perimeter.

MODIS 250m data not only gives better resolution of fire perimeter but also shows major active fire regions.

Near real time availability of fire perimeter and active fire region (pre-noon and after-noon).
