Area covered by the point: a hotspot indicates the existence of fire in one picture element (pixel), which varies from 1 km x 1 km to 5 km x 4 km.

If a fire is very extensive, it will be detected by some neighbouring pixels: in other words, various hot spots will be associated with a single large fire.
