The public can view ASEAN hotspots obtained from Satellite imagery provided either by the ASEAN Specialised Meteorological Centre (ASMC) or from the Indonesian National Institute of Aeronautics and Space (LAPAN). These hotspot data-sets are updated daily and displayed spatially overlaid on the map.
The Fire Weather Index (FWI) for the ASEAN region is provided by the Malaysian Meteorological Services as part of its Fire Danger Rating System (FDRS). These heat-maps provide numerical ratings for general fire danger & intensity and is an indicator of the difficulty for fire control.
Additionally, the ASEAN Fire Alert Tool can help check & send push notification alerts on specific land regions you have already marked out for automated daily hotspot monitoring and/or for changes in the Fire Weather Indices. Push notifications are sent at approx 1900hrs (GMT+8).
You can register to mark your land regions at this website: https://www.AseanFireAlert.org
This is a free service.
Note: As we only collect Hotspot Data for the ASEAN Region, only regions marked in the ASEAN region would receive such hotspot alerts/FDRS-FWI alerts, if any.
