Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Q. At what scale should LANDFIRE data be used?
LANDFIRE products were designed to support national, regional, and sub-regional analysis activities.
- The native spatial resolution of LANDFIRE raster spatial products is 30-meters, however, the appropriate application scale is much larger than 30 meters, and will vary by a combination of product, location, and specific use.
- Users should refer to the metadata and local, regional or expert knowledge to determine if LANDFIRE products are appropriate for their application in their area.
- LANDFIRE products are not intended to replace local products, but serve as a rich supplemental data source with complete areal coverage, regardless of ownership.
