Burnt Planet is a global Natural Resource and Land Management tool. It provides real time access to global hotspot data generated by the MODIS sensors aboard the Terra & Aqua satellites.
The data is processed by FIRMS (The Fire Information for Resource Management System) at The University of Marylands.
Data can up to 24 hours old and maybe have accuracy to 1500 metres.
Some hotspots detected are not fires. Some hotspots are not detected because of smoke or cloud cover.
This data is for reference purposes only.
DO NOT RELY ON THIS APP OR IT'S DATA IN A WILDFIRE EMERGENCY.
What's New in Version 1.2
Download progress meter
Fixed bug which prevented timestamps appearing

Wish it worked....
I was looking forward to having this app because i live in the desert southwest of the US. Monitoring wildfires is important here, however, the app will not work. I get a "network error: cannot connect to server" message every tome i try to load a map. Its not my internet because my browser and other apps all work fine. Tried 2 hard restarts of my phone, same thing. I even deleted the app and downloaded it a second time just to be sure. Same issue. Please fix this. I would like to have this app.
No longer workss
This app used to collect MODIS satellite observation of global fire locations and hotspots, but it hasn't been updated since 2012 and no longer works. Contact with the developer in Australia ha yielded no response. A formerly good app that is utterly useless now.
