Sentinel Hotspots - AUSTRALIA

Please note the limitations of the Sentinel Hotspots mapping system:

  1. Under ideal conditions, the hotspots shown will have been detected 1-24 hours ago, depending on regional information received from the last satellite overpass.
  2. The hotspot location on any map (no matter how detailed) is only accurate to at best 1.5 km.
  3. The symbol used for the hotspot on the maps does not indicate the size of the fire.
  4. Not all hotspots are detected by the satellites. Some heat sources may be too small, not hot enough, or obscured by thick smoke or cloud.
  5. The satellites detect any heat source that is hotter than normal. As well as fires these may include industrial operations such as furnaces.
