This website provide a 3D spatial and temporal representation of fires that occurs In Madagascar and Comorros Islands. Fires are detected from two satelittes by NASA and University of Maryland, throught The Fire Information for Resource Management System
(FIRMS). Data are collected for Madagascar and dispatch by Conservation International Fire Altert Project
