The United States and Argentina have combined resources to produce a Spanish language website sharing satellite imagery and videos of the recent wildfires in Argentina. The project is a joint effort between Argentina, NASA, the US Department of State and ESRI.  CONAE, who uses NASA’s algorithms and data, was the lead satellite organization responding to this disaster.
