LANDFIRE's (LF) Existing Vegetation Height (EVH) represents the average height of the dominant vegetation for a 30-m cell.
Canopy height is generated separately for tree, shrub, and herbaceous lifeforms using training data and other geospatial layers. EVH is determined by the average height weighted by species cover and based on the Existing Vegetation Type (EVT) lifeform.
LF uses EVH in several subsequent layers, including the development of the fuel products.
Modeling Dynamic Fuels with an Index System (MoD-FIS)-refined EVH classification based upon current estimates of EVC from Landsat imagery for the current growing season.
The comma separated value (CSV) file used for the raster attribute table is included in the LF product download in database file (DBF) format.
