Curious about LANDFIRE?

rab that third cup of coffee and join a LANDFIRE team member (or two) for an informal, back and forth open office hours chat. This series is managed by TNC's LANDFIRE Team and will include participation from a variety of federal and non-federal partners and guests.

These 1-hr (informal) office hour chats will help you: 

1. Learn how to best use LANDFIRE data within the context of your work (get some free help!) 

2. Troubleshoot common LANDFIRE questions (have a question, bring it) 

3. Get familiar with the best (and worst) uses of LANDFIRE data (see LANDFIRE data in action)

What can you expect? 

1. A LANDFIRE team member will host a short demo or LANDFIRE-themed presentation (addressing the topic outlined in the schedule below). 

2. At least 40 minutes to dig into your questions (bring your LANDFIRE-related problems, ArcMap projects (they need not be complete), R code (in progress is okay) and we will troubleshoot, brainstorm and investigate them together.
