Geoscience Australia is excited to announce updates to the Sentinel Hotspots site https://sentinel.ga.gov.au/#/ .
We have made improvements to the website including updating the frequency of the mosaic of Australia to every 20 minutes (now using the Himawari-8 imagery – a geostationary weather satellite, instead of the MODIS imagery under the Layers tab), and increasing the coverage and quality of hotspots on our website by using multiple ground stations and stitching the results together. Please use the Webservice link in your viewers to access these new updates http://sentinel.ga.gov.au/geoserver/wms?
If you do not have access to the Sentinel-secure site and are working in Emergency Management and/or are affiliated with a government department, please contact Earth.firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest.
