Global Wildfire Information System (GWIS)The Global Wildfire Information System is a joint initiative of the GEO and the Copernicus Work Programs. TheGlobal Wildfire Information System (GWIS) aims at bringing together existing information sources at regional and national level in order to provide a comprehensive view and evaluation of fire regimes and fire effects at global level.GWIS builds on the ongoing activities of the European Forest Fire Information System (EFFIS), the Global Terrestrial Observing System (GTOS) Global Observation of Forest Cover- Global Observation of Land Dynamics (GOFC-GOLD) Fire Implementation Team (GOFC Fire IT), and the associated Regional Networks, complementing existing activities that are on-going around the world with respect to wildfire information gathering. The development of GWIS is supported by the partner organizations and space agencies. Support to GWIS was just launched by NASA through its ROSES programAccess to worldwide information on wildfires is available through the GWIS viewer at http://gwis.jrc.ec.europa.eu/static/gwis_current_situation/public/index.html Reference:  http://gwis.jrc.ec.europa.eu/
