The burned area products will cover the time series 2001 - 2017.

There are two main types of products: global (with a spatial resolution of 250-300 m, depending on the sensor being used), and the Small Fire Database (SFD) covering different areas (mainly Africa) at a higher resolution (approx. 20 m, corresponding to Sentinel 2).

Two products are currently being generated by the Fire_cci Project:

  • Pixel Product: The global product is provided in continental tiles, while the SFD at 5x5 degree tiles, and  it is distributed 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 fraction of burnable area, the fraction of observed area, the number of patches, and the total area burned per land cover type.
