LANDFIRE Reference Data

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.

LF is positioning itself to transition back to an update schedule (potentially in 2021). LF is asking for data to be submitted earlier than in the past to potentially allow LF to produce new products on an annual basis, thus providing more current data.

All data contributions need to meet LF requirements. As LF transitions to the update schedule, data submitted by November 30, 2019, will be guaranteed to be included in the update. After November 30, all remaining data can still be provided until March 31, 2020. After the deadline, please note that LF welcomes data contributions throughout the year and will use these data as schedules allow or archive the data for future use.

The primary focus for this data call is to collect polygon disturbance and treatment activities that occurred in 2019. Activities from 2017 and 2018 that were not previously submitted to LF are also welcome. The secondary focus is to collect both vegetation/fuel plot data and lidar data. The official LF Remap plot and lidar data submission deadline passed, though you can still submit data. Plot and lidar data will either be used as schedules allow or archived for future use. LF also welcomes feedback on current products.

LF needs your help to collect four types of data:
