Q. Why is my LANDFIRE (LF) data download (using the Data Distribution Site (DDS) or the LF Data Access Tool (LFDAT)) an empty zip file?
There is an intermittent problem with Internet Explorer and how the LF DDS and LFDAT deliver data. After you make your data selection and click Download from the DDS Request Summary window, a status window pops up. Don't close that window yet. This window provides an alternate link to retrieve your zipped data:
If an error occurs during download, click here to retrieve the download bundle.
Click on the here link inside the download file window to get your data.
