An atlas of vegetation fires over Africa as derived from AVHRR-GAC-5 km imagery, provided by the NOAA satellites, for the November 1984 to October 1989 period is presented. 1060 daily GAC images have been processed using a semi-automatic procedure of active fire detection. This atlas, consisting of fire pixel counts at five degree square resolution, has been derived from monthly syntheses of the daily continental fire maps, masked for arid and desert areas.
