Numerous bushfires burning across Australia have scorched more than 10 million hectares (~25 million acres) and destroyed more than 2,600 homes, mainly in Australia Capital Territory, New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania, and Victoria.

ALERT™ subscribers can download a Touchstone®-ready shapefile. For Australia Capital Territory, Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania, and Victoria, the shapefile represents the outer perimeters of active and recent fires. For New South Wales, the shapefile represents the outer perimeters of not only active and recent fires but also all fires that have burned since July 1, 2019. The shapefile is based on data from The EMSINA Group and Geoscience Australia and represents the spatial extent of fire spread, not a burn scar; there are areas within the shapefile that have not burned.
