Abstract

LANDFIRE, also known as the Landscape Fire and Resource Management Planning Tools Program, is a vegetation, fire, and fuel characteristic mapping program managed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service and the U.S. Department of the Interior. LANDFIRE represents the first, and only, complete, nationally consistent collection of spatial resource datasets with an ecological foundation that can be used across multiple disciplines.

LANDFIRE data products are primarily designed and developed to be used at the landscape level to facilitate national and regional strategic planning and reporting of wild land fire and other natural resource management activities. However, LANDFIRE’s spatially comprehensive dataset can also be adapted to support a variety of local management applications that need current and comprehensive geospatial data.
