Fire and Smoke Detections in AWIPS II

SPoRT is working towards ingesting and displaying satellite-based fire and smoke detections in AWIPS II.  The visible image below shows a smoke plume in southeastern Idaho, captured by GOES West at 2345Z on July 13, 2010.  The orange dots represent fire/hotspot detections while the polygons represent smoke detections (red=”heavy” smoke, yellow=”medium” smoke, and green=”light” smoke).
