        abstract:  The Satellite Services Division of NESDIS/NOAA created an interactive Web-based GIS used to display satellite data of fire detects in near-real time. It converts the data to a format compatible with ArcIMS and creates a steady flow of the data to the Web Server. The Web Server updates the data being displayed on the internet by deleting the old data and displaying new data. The analyzed fires and smoke layer are update primarily between the hours of 1 pm and 11 pm Eastern time, with occasional updates during the rest of the day. The automated layers are updated twenty-four hours a day as new satellite imagery is received. The product covers the continental United States, Alaska and Hawaii.
        purpose:  The Hazard Mapping System is an interactive processing system that allows the trained satellite analysts within the Satellite Services Division (SSD) to manually integrate data from various automated fire detection algorithms with GOES and polar (Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR), and Moderate Resolution Imaging spectroradiometer Fire Algorithm (MODIS) images. Theresult is a quality controlled display of the locations of fires and significant smoke plumes detected by meteorological satellites.

Tactical decisions, such as the activation of a response to fight these fires, should not be made without other information to corroborate the fire's existence and location.This server and data are not considered "operational".

            otherConstraints:  Use Constraints: The information on fire position should be used as a general guidance and for strategic planning. Tactical decisions, such as the activation of a response to fight these fires, should not be made without other information to corroborate the fire's existence and location. Users should note:1) Fires from the automatic detection algorithms outside the US may be included in some of the images, BUT they have not been quality controlled. Only the fires within the US have been scrutinized by the analysts.2) The HMS product for any given day is created and updated by a satellite analyst between 1pm and 11pm Eastern time. After 11pm, the analysis is fine-tuned as time permits. The final product for the previous day is "completed" for the archive at the beginning of the next day's fire shift.3) The fire sizes depicted in the product are primarily determined by the field of view of the satellite instrument, or the resolution of the analysis tool. They should not be used toestimate specific fire perimeters.

            evaluationMethodDescription:  Analyzed Fires and Smoke from Satellites - This is the Hazard Mapping System (HMS) fire and smoke product, made by a satellite analyst who quality checks the fire positions(red) and annotates visible smoke (gray). The analysts' shift runs from about 1-11 pm EST/EDT. The first thing the analyst does is update the analysis for the previous day, to ensure it includes all fires detected for that calendar day. Then work begins on the current day's analysis, which will be updated periodically throughout the shift.GOES-3hr layer - This layer is an accumulation of the most recent 3 hours ofWF-ABBA (Wildfire Automated Biomass Burning Algorithm) data. Use this layer tosee the most recent, active fires.GOES-24hr layer - The Wildfire Automated Biomass Burning Algorithm (WF-ABBA)layer is updated with each GOES image (every 15-30 minutes). This layer containsdetects from the last 24 hours.AVHRR layer - The Fire Identification Mapping and Monitoring Algorithm (FIMMA)layer is updated with every daytime pass from NOAA's polar orbiting satellites with theproper channel from the AVHRR instrument turned on over the region of interest. Thislayer contains detects from the last 24 hours.MODIS layer - The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) layeris updated with every new granule from the MODIS instrument over the region ofinterest. This layer contains detects from the last 24 hours.Fire Potential layer - Light blue areas (if any exist) are guidance fire weather forecastareas issued by the National Weather Service (NWS) Storm Prediction Center. Theseforecasts are issued at 4am CST/CDT and are NOT updated. Please refer to your local NWS fire weather forecasts for the latest specific fire weather forecasts and red flagwarnings.

The result is a quality controlled display of the locations of fires andsignificant smoke plumes detected by meteorological satellites. In addition to theanalyzed fires and smoke layers, several automated layers are available via the Webpage:GOES Fire Detects from the Wildfire Automated Biomass Burning Algorithm(WF-ABBA). The WF-ABBA system runs operationally at the Satellite ServicesDivision (SSD). The SSD product is a reformatted version of the North Americanproduct available on the Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies(CIMSS) at the University of Wisconsin website. The reformatting of the WF-ABBAproduct consists of removing the lowest probability fires (category 5), as validation atCIMSS has shown that many of the low possibility fires are not fires. The fields fire sizeand temperature have been removed as they are very rough estimates of the averageinstantaneous sub-pixel fire(s) size and temperature, and are not meant to be used forwildfire diagnosis. Each fire is described by a single line, specifying longitude, latitude, 4micron (channel 2) temperature, 11 micron (channel 4) temperature, ecosystemcategory, and a fire flag. This product is available within 30 minutes of the satellite imagetime. The product quality is very good. One problem can occur with GOES-West data.Due to low instrument saturation temperature, the algorithm may confuse hot surfaces(typically during the day, in the summer) for fires.AVHRR Fire Detects from the Fire Identification, Mapping and Monitoring Algorithm(FIMMA).
