Several forest fires occurred since August 21, 2009 in the southeastern of the prefecture Euboea, Greece. The map shows the burnt areas derived by the analysis of ALOS AVNIR-2 satellite data acquired on August 25, 2009 and the location of active fire hot spots on different days. Please note that areas below clouds may in some cases not be detected properly. Only cloudless areas were considered for calculating the statistics of the burnt areas. The hot spots were automatically derived from MODIS Fire Information System. Streets have been digitised on the basis of World Street Map and do only show parts of the entire road network. All information is superimposed on a natural colour image of the ALOS AVNIR-2 scene from August 25, 2009.
