About Using Fire TrendR
Fire TrendR is an app that lets you interactively plot NASA's MODIS and VIIRS Active Fire datasets
From the left navigation panel you'll be able to access data and charts that display fire trends across the United States
Relavent Datasets Include:
VIIRS Active Fire - With the increased resolution of the VIIRS sensor, this product provides a greater detection response over fires of relatively small areas
MODIS Active Fire - With an archive that goes back to 2000, this product provides one of the longest records of fire history across the US
MODIS Burned Area - Post fire products like the MCD64A1 offer additional insights into fire history and can be used to validate active fire records
This application was made with Shiny and the application was adopted from R code on github
VIIRS Time Series Figures
In this section you can view a couple of charts that display VIIRS Active Fire pixel counts by state over time.
The Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) 375 m thermal anomalies / active fire product provides data from the VIIRS sensor aboard the joint NASA/NOAA Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (Suomi NPP) satellite. The 375 m data complements Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) fire detection; they both show good agreement in hotspot detection but the improved spatial resolution of the 375 m data provides a greater response over fires of relatively small areas and provides improved mapping of large fire perimeters
MODIS Time Series Figures
In this section you can view a couple of charts that display MODIS Active Fire pixel counts by state over time.
Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) Thermal Anomalies / Fire locations represent the center of a 1km pixel that is flagged by the MODIS MOD14/MYD14 Fire and Thermal Anomalies algorithm (Giglio 2003) as containing one or more fires within the pixel.
MCD64A1 Time Series Figures
In this section you can view a couple of charts that display MCD64A1 burned area by state over time.
The Terra and Aqua combined MCD64A1 Version 6 Burned Area data product is a monthly, global gridded 500 meter (m) product containing per-pixel burned-area and quality information. The MCD64A1 burned-area mapping approach employs 500 m Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) Surface Reflectance imagery coupled with 1 kilometer (km) MODIS active fire observations.
October 2020 version: 1.0
