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 databases/Systems of Record (SOR). The Website Agency DB Table provides a list of websites or agency databases/SOR from which LF acquires data.
LF has transitioned to annual updates and needs as much time as possible to process data. LF is asking for data to be submitted or available in database systems by October 31st. Please make every effort to have your FY 2023 data accessible to LF by October 31, 2023. Data accessibility may include entering data into online databases/Systems of Record (SOR) so it can be obtained by LF. Data submitted after the deadline will be used if schedules allow. All data contributions must meet LF requirements.
The primary focus of this data call is to collect FY 2023 disturbance and treatment activities. To make annual updates possible we will be asking for data from the fiscal year which runs from 10/01/2022 – 09/30/2023. LF now requires disturbance/treatment date or fiscal year to be included with your data submission,. This will ensure your data are processed correctly. The secondary focus is to collect vegetation/fuel plot data. LF also welcomes feedback on current products.
LF needs your help to collect four types of data:
|geo-referenced vegetation and fuel conditions||tabular - text files, spreadsheets, relational databases|
|Spatial- shapefiles, geodatabases, coverages|
LF Reference Data Requirements minimum information needed for each data type and additional attributes that are highly beneficial to improve data products.
