blue colored puzzle piece WHAT

LF data characterize the current and historical states of vegetation, fuels, fire regimes, and disturbances. LF produces a comprehensive, consistent, scientifically credible suite of more than 25 geospatial layers, a reference database, and a set of quantitative vegetation models at a national extent. LF data supports landscape assessments, analysis, and natural resource management. LF supplements and assists modeling of fire behavior and effects.

yellow colored puzzle piece WHY

LF began due to an increased concern about the number, severity, and size of wildland fires and the need for consistent national biological/ecological inventory data. LF identifies areas across the nation potentially susceptible to wildland fire to support community and firefighter protection. LF has evolved and expanded to include other applications such as habitat research and disturbance maps.

LF is working towards annual updates in which the landscape changes from the year before are represented in current year products. The LF DDS provides access to the two base maps and the most recent updates.

Users may experience intermittent service Thursday evenings due to routine maintenance.
The LF Map Viewer (DDS) will be down every 3rd Wednesday from 8 am - 10:00 am (CDT) for routine maintenance.
