MAPS IN THE NEWS:
Brazil has experienced 80% more wildfires thus far in 2019 than in the same period in 2018, and the traditional wildfire season is just beginning. Global Forest Watch collates NASA satellite data to create near-real time maps of fires around the world. This map shows the location of fire alerts from a recent week. (Although fires in Brazil have gotten all the press, the Global Forest Watch map also shows extensive forest fires across central Africa.) fires.globalforestwatch.org/map
