The International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) developed this system to provide daily satellite images of the Earth"s landmasses in near real time. True-color satellite images are available within a few hours of being collected, making the system a valuable resource for fire protection and management. The system can be a valuable resource for organizations such as ICIMOD, which use the images to track active fires and publish them in a web interface for regional member countries to address near real-time fire monitoring.
