LANDFIRE (LF) would like to acknowledge and thank everyone who has contributed data. LF collects data through user submitted data contributions and by searching for data on websites and agency database systems.
As LF continues to work towards the goal of annual updates, LF needs as much time as possible to process data. LF is asking for data to be submitted or available in data base systems one month earlier than in previous years. The new data submission deadline is October 31st. Please make every effort to submit your data by October 31 of each year, as LF is relying heavily on user contributed data for this update. Data submitted after the deadline will be used if schedules allow or be archived for future use. All data contributions must meet LF requirements.
The primary focus of this data call is to collect FY 2022 disturbance and treatment activities. To make annual updates possible we will be asking for data from the fiscal year which runs from 10/1/2021 – 9/30/2022. LF is asking for a new required attribute that must be included with your data submission, disturbance/treatment date or fiscal year. This will ensure your data are processed correctly. The secondary focus is to collect both vegetation/fuel plot data and invasive species polygons and plots. LF also welcomes feedback on current products.
LF needs your help to collect four types of data:
LF uses airborne lidar data collections to develop vegetation structure models. Please provide links and contact information to obtain data that are available to the public.
If data are not publicly accessible, please contact the LF Reference Data Administrator to determine the best method for transfer.
|geo-referenced vegetation and fuel conditions||tabular - text files, spreadsheets, relational databases|
|Spatial- shapefiles, geodatabases, coverages|
