NO EXISTEN AREAS AFECTADAS O DAÑOS DETECTADOS

Información de la mapa

On Saturday, January 29th, at national level, 63 active wildfires reported, 50 are controlled, 14 have been extinguished, affecting 509 000 hectares of vegetation in eighth regions of the country (Valparaíso, Metropolitana, O'Higgins, Maule, Bio-Bio, Araucanía, Los Ríos, Los Lagos). Many people have been evacuated from their houses but unfortunately several fatalities have been reported.

The present map shows the fire delineation in the area of La Union (Chile). The thematic layer has been derived from post-event satellite image by means of visual interpretation. The estimated geometric accuracy is 5 m or better, from native positional accuracy of the background satellite image.

Please notice that due to the difficulty of interpretation inherent to the acquisition, most burnt areas proposed in the FAM are finally interpreted as not burnt areas according to further technical investigations.
