Fire_cci Small Fire Database

In this webpage you will be able to download the burned area (BA) corresponding to the Small Fire Database generated by the Fire_cci project. Fire_cci is one of the Essential Climate Variables (Fire disturbance) under the European Space Agency’s Climate Change Initiative. The scope of the project is to provide long-term burned area information for global vegetation and atmospheric modellers.

The Small Fire Database Fire_cci v1.1 product (FireCCISFD11 for short) was released on October 2018. It was obtained combining spectral information from Sentinel-2 at 20m resolution and thermal information from the MODIS active fire products.

Version 1.1 of the FireCCISFD11 database is available for 2016 for Sub-Saharan Africa. The product is produced at two different resolutions, both in geographic coordinates:

  • pixel (0.00017966259º - ~20m)
  • grid (0.25°) (to be available in a few weeks)

For further information on the characteristics and variables of the database, please refer to the Product User Guide.
