The Landscape Fire and Resource Management Planning Tools Project—LANDFIRE—is an innovative wildland fire, ecosystem, and fuel assessment-mapping project designed to generate comprehensive, landscape-scale maps of vegetation, fire, and fuel characteristics for the United States and some island areas using a consistent process. Users can view and/or download products which are updated every two years to reflect how the landscape changes over time. These data provide information for strategic planning for regional- and national-scale planning for wildfire and for natural resource management activities.
- The LANDFIRE Data Distribution site is a dynamic online map interface that can be used to view USGS datasets
- The LANDFIRE Data Access Tool (LFDAT) is an ArcGIS toolbar developed by the Rocky Mountain Research Station and distributed by the Wildland Fire Management RD&A Fuels and Fire Ecology Program. The tool allows users to interact with the LANDFIRE Data Distribution Site and download LANDFIRE data directly from ArcMap.
