Description

An overlay mapping real-time satellite-based wildfire detections from the MODIS and VIIRS satellites. These data represent point locations of thermal anomalies detected by the satellites. This layer is updated several times daily as new data is made available by the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Use it to plan reroutes, predict likely trail closures, and stay safe during wildfire season.

Warning

Not all detections presented in this layer are fires; other thermal anomalies (flares, volcanoes) can also be detected. This map source is updated several times daily as new data is made available by NASA, but many detections will be out of date or incorrect, and more recent detections may not have been added yet. Use of this map layer for any purpose is at your own risk, and Trailbehind Inc (maker of Gaia GPS) is not responsible for any actions you take based on the information contained in any map.
