Two products are currently being generated by the Fire_cci Project:

  • Pixel Product: has a spatial resolution of 250-500 m, depending on the sensor being used. The global product is provided in continental tiles, and in monthly files in GeoTIFF format. The layers of the files include the date of fire detection, the confidence level, and the land cover information of the pixel burned, extracted from the Land Cover CCI product.
  • Grid Product: has a spatial resolution of 0.25 degrees. It is provided as 15-day global grid files in NetCDF format. They include information on the total area burned in each cell, the standard error, the number of patches, and the total area burned per land cover type.
