NAFI - North Australian Fire Information
The North Australian Fire Information (NAFI) website includes maps of North Australia showing recently burning fires (hotspots) that have been detected by satellites. The website allows users to select areas, zoom-in and to select map layers like fire history, rainfall lines etc.
The NAFI website was developed by the former Tropical Savannas Cooperative Research Centre and north Australian fire managers and is supported by the Northern Territory Government. It sources relevant fire management data, such as hotspots (locations of recently burning fires as deteced by satellites) and fire scars (maps of recently burnt country as detected by satellites) and displays them as maps tailored to north Australian conditions.
Hotspots are sourced from Landgate Western Australia (from NOAA and NASA satellites) and Geoscience Australia (from NASA satellites).
Firescars are sourced from Bushfires NT (for NT and northern WA fire scars) and Cape York Peninsula Sustainable Futures (for Queensland).
The site has also been funded by the Federal Government's Natural Heritage Trust program, through the NT NRM Board. The site is hosted at Charles Darwin University.
