Description

This app brings the most used fire information resource for land managers in Australia to your phone, allowing you to keep a constant eye on bushfire threats. You can view maps of recent fire activity (hotspots) and burnt areas (fire scars) provided by the North Australia and Rangelands Fire Information (NAFI) service.

The hotspot locations are updated several times a day and the fire scars are updated up to once or twice a week depending on fire conditions.

The fire scars are produced by the NAFI Service and the hotspots are sourced from Landgate WA and Geoscience Australia.

Base maps for imagery and topography can be downloaded for your region of interest, and then used for when you go outside of mobile data range.

Burnt area mapping covers the Australian Savannas and rangelands that comprise around 70% of Australia, but does not cover NSW, VIC or the more populated regions of QLD, WA and SA.


PLEASE BE AWARE WHEN USING THIS APP:

Hotspot location on any map may only be accurate to within 1.5 km
The hotspot symbol on the maps does not indicate the size of the fire
Some fires may be small, brief, or obscured by smoke or cloud and go undetected
Satellites detect other heat sources such as smokestacks
