Abstract: In 2008 the EFFIS web site has been totally renewed. The cover of the newsletter is showing a screen shot of the home page of the new web site, which was launched on June 19th. The web site has been designed to allow for easier and enhanced interaction with the users and to facilitate the navigation though the different applications. Three main application areas are now active: the Current fire situation (previously named up-to-date situation), the Advanced viewer (the traditional EFFIS mapping interface) and the Fire news. The Fire news provides easy access to the media news available in the web (last 15 days) on forest fires in Europe, grouped by country. A map of Europe shows how many news are available per country and allows the user to access the news of a given country by clicking on the map. The Current fire situation provides quick access to key information to monitor the fire situation in Europe along the fire season: fire danger forecast up to 6 days, daily updated hot spots and burned area maps of larger fires (normally those larger than 50 ha), daily satellite images (MODIS).
