LANDFIRE Data Wordle

LANDFIRE Remap is a comprehensive vegetation and fuels mapping effort designed to produce new base maps of the LF product suite. Consistent methodologies and processes, including access to the most current satellite imagery, contemporary data sources and software and hardware technologies, are being combined with broadening program partnerships to create a product that improves upon the updated versions of legacy LANDFIRE  National.

Remap has focused efforts towards advancing LF mapping methodologies spanning several topical areas. Specifically, Remap is amending the Existing Vegetation Height and Existing Vegetation Cover legends to represent continuous percent cover and height to represent the landscape structure characteristics and variability at a finer thematic resolution, on which fire fuel modeling is greatly dependent.
