Public LF
National
Reference Database

A public version of the LANDFIRE (LF) National LF Reference Database (LFRDB) is available which contains a subset of the data and attributes used for LF production. The Public LFRDB includes vegetation and fuel information and were largely amassed from existing information resources such as:

For the LF Remap effort, new and updated plot information are being compiled and used to inform existing vegetation mapping. The entire LF Remap Public LFRDB will be made available for download at the completion the LF Remap effort, which is expected in mid to late 2020.

Data archived in the LF National Public LFRDB include:

VegetationFuel
natural community occurrences
estimates of canopy cover and height per plant taxon
occurrence of exotics plants
biomass estimates of downed woody material
percentage cover and height of shrub and herb layers
canopy base height estimates

Major Public LFRDB attributes derived from the sampling data include:

Certain proprietary and/or sensitive data were removed in the public database. Consult the table lutVisitsSourceID in the database regarding data sources.

The Public LFRDB can be used as input to spatial and non-spatial vegetation models and is applicable for ground truthing and accuracy assessments for a variety of modeling and mapping efforts.
