2017 LANDFIRE Data Call


Do you manage or coordinate vegetation or landscape data sets such as field plot/transect data or disturbance/treatment polygons? If so, the LANDFIRE Program needs your data.

LANDFIRE remaps data products with new imagery and new vegetation/fuel plot data to reflect contemporary conditions, so that geospatial landscape data are as reflective of on the ground conditions as possible. Why? -- Additional plot data have a great potential to improve the quality of the data products especially in areas where lower/limited plot data were available for LF National (circa 2001). To that end, LANDFIRE NEEDS YOUR DATA!
The primary focus is to collect polygon disturbance and treatment activities from 2017. The submission deadline for the current data call is March 31, 2018.  Data submitted before then will be evaluated for inclusion in the next LF data cycle. Submissions after March 31 will be utilized in the next product version if possible. If not they will be considered in subsequent efforts. 

For more information on how to participate and deliver data, visit the LANDFIRE website or contact Brenda Lundberg, LANDFIRE Reference Data Administrator,  (406) 329-3405.
LANDFIRE also acquires data from websites and agency data base systems. For a list of these sources see the Website Agency DB spreadsheet.
