    Total number of fire occurrences, calculated using data from the MODIS satellite (products MOD14A2 and MYD14A2, "Thermal Anomalies and Fire", https://lpdaac.usgs.gov/products/modis_products_table/myd14a2). In each pixel of the derived map (1-kilometer resolution), the total is based time-series based on 8-daily tiles, one for each MODIS product. Fire occurrence is recorded if it occurs at least in one of the two products. Each time-series step is based on 9 MODIS tiles: (name,lonmin, latmin, lonmax, latmax): 'h19v08',1111950.519667,1111950.519667,2223901.039333,-0.000000; 'h19v09',1111950.519667,-0.000000,2223901.039333,-1111950.519667; 'h19v10',1111950.519667,-1111950.519667,2223901.039333,-2223901.039333; 'h20v08',2223901.039333,1111950.519667,3335851.559000,-0.000000; 'h20v09',2223901.039333,-0.000000,3335851.559000,-1111950.519667; 'h20v10',2223901.039333,-1111950.519667,3335851.559000,-2223901.039333; 'h21v08',3335851.559000,1111950.519667,4447802.078667,-0.000000; 'h21v09',3335851.559000,-0.000000,4447802.078667,-1111950.519667; 'h21v10',3335851.559000,-1111950.519667,4447802.078667,-2223901.039333; The initial maps derived from MODIS products were concatenated, re-projected, and converted to uint8. In addition, only the data within the DRC borders were retained.
