The ESA Fire Climate Change Initiative (CCI) dataset collection consists of maps of global burned areas for years 2005 to 2011, developed from satellite observations. The products are based upon spectral information from the Medium Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (MERIS), on board the ESA ENVISAT satellite, and thermal information from the MODIS active fires product.
The Grid product is derived from the Pixel product by summarising its burned area information into a regular grid covering the Earth for 15-day periods with 0.25 degree resolution. Information on burned area is included in 22 individual layers: sum of burned area, standard error, fraction of observed area, number of patches and the burned area for 18 land cover classes, as defined by the Land Cover CCI v1.6.1 product. For further information on the product and its format see the Fire_cci product user guide in the linked documentation.
