Earth on Fire

An interesting website, called MODIS, lists all the areas in the world which has fires. This image is telling.




If we thought that Msia has it bad with the fires in Sumatera, just look at Africa! Jeez.

The Gallery section is especially helpful as it has realtime satellite images of the areas affected. Here is are the results of a search for Indonesia however the images are NOT uptodate. 25th June only, which is ancient!





Click on the image above, and you can test out a really cool app which has the ability to zoom in... like Google Earth. Otherwise see the big version.

I dont get it, but Indonesia/Malaysia seems to be left out of these 'subsets'. How annoying.
