We developed a technique for mapping wildland fire in California, USA, using NOAA-14/AVHRR/HRPT data. We integrated a modified active fire detection algorithm and a modified HANDS algorithm. The technique was applied to map wildland fires in California during the 1999 fire season. Reliable results were produced. Most of the wildfires mapped were correct through visual inspection of satellite composite images, validation based on limited ground truth data from the California Departemnt of Forestry and Fire Protection and interpreted burned areas from TM scenes
