Active-fire based burned area - MODIS, MCD64A1(v5.1) mosaic
Estimates the approximate date of burning and creates a map of the spatial extent of recent fires. The combined use of active-fire and reflectance data enables the algorithm to adapt regionally over a wide range of pre- and post-burn conditions and across multiple ecosystems.
