About the Map Display

This is a demonstration of an experimental alternative web interface for the Sentinel national bushfire monitoring system. It uses a subset of the features of the production system and a simplified interface designed for mobile devices, such as smartphones, PDAs and ultra-mobile PCs. Do not use this interface for real fire tracking, use the production version of the Sentinel system from DIGO, CSIRO Land and Water and Geoscience Australia.
