Brief description

This package contains Geotiff images of fire affected areas in Kakadu and Nitmiluk National Park for the years 1989 onwards, and Litchfield National Park for the years 1990 onwards. Pre-2000 images are based on Landsat imagery and attribution of each burnt pixel is either early or late. Images from 2000 onwards is based on NASA Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) and each burnt pixel is tagged with the month that covers the largest part of the date interval in which the burnt pixel was detected; these Images are clipped from geotiff images of fire affected areas in far northern Australia available from North Australian Fire Information (NAFI) website. The images have a resolution of 250 m (pixel size). These data cover Kakadu, Litchfield and Nitmiluk National Parks, but are part of a larger data set that extends across far northern WA down to 21 degrees S, across the entire NT (down to 26 degrees S) and all of Qld (down to 29 degrees S). The NAFI mapping covers the years 2000 to present and since 2012, the mapping also includes northern SA down to 29 degrees S. Mapping landscapes north of 20 degrees S in WA, NT and Qld has been validated by aerial and on-ground transects across northern Australia.
