What are the red dots on the map?

  • Updated

The red colored dots are the the latest hotspots detected by the VIIRS and MODIS heat-detection satellites. We do not have VIIRS and MODIS data for every fire. Where we do have data, this provides a good general sense for where the fire has been over the last 24 hours.
