FireCCI51 burned area added to the official catalogue of Google Earth Engine

We are glad to announce that the FireCCI51 burned area pixel product, based on MODIS reflectance at 250 m resolution, has been added as an official product in the Google Earth Engine catalogue. Users can find the data at https://developers.google.com/earth-engine/datasets/catalog/ESA_CCI_FireCCI_5_1?hl=en.

This platform can greatly facilitate the processing of the pixel dataset, comprising more than 90 GB of data for the period 2001-2019. Google Earth Engine combines a multi-petabyte catalogue of satellite imagery and geospatial datasets with planetary-scale analysis capabilities and makes it available for scientists, researchers, and developers to detect changes, map trends, and quantify differences on the Earth's surface. It can be used for free after registering in the platform.
