LANDFIRE – ALL LANDS DATA FROM VEGETATION TO FUELS: PLANNING, ENGAGEMENT, AND FEEDBACK

Utah State University and The Nature Conservancy present the September 2017 Learn at Lunch Webinar:

This webinar, led by LANDFIRE Business Lead Henry Bastian, will cover more than a decade old program (LANDFIRE) at producing and updating land cover data products across all 50 United States and insular areas. Although many have thought of LANDFIRE as only a wildland fire data set, the rich array of data layers and databases (vegetation type, cover, and height; successional state and transition models and database; to national plot and polygon databases) have fundamentally improved information integration and decision support for managers, scientists, and leadership across fire, habitat, and natural resources management. This presentation will explore the past comprehensive suite of data that leads to the future in advancing data integration, partnerships in authoritative data sources, and improve mapping change with engagement and user feedback as a key tenant. Consistent wall to wall data provides a strong foundation for the future national remap project with the goal of improved data quality. Federal, State, Tribal, Researcher, Academics, and local managers are provided with a consistent data framework that can be used across multiple levels and efforts.
