Firespot: Wildfire scanner

Rayner Software LLC
Firespot shows you the latest satellite-detected fires around the world, and can notify you of new fires in your vicinity. Configure your alerts, and your device will show a notification when there are fires in your area.

Satellite fire detection is a cutting-edge technology which can serve as an early warning system for new wildfires, especially ones that start in remote areas where human detection may be delayed. Quickly visualize the extent and severity of existing fires, and see new ones as they're detected.

Firespot receives data from a set of satellites in orbit around Earth. These satellites scan the planet surface, recording radiation data across different bands and processing that data to determine likely fires. Current fire data is provided by the European Space Agency's Sentinel-3 satellite constellation.

Firespot is not meant as a replacement for local evacuation alerts and information.
