Landscape Fire and Resource Management Planning Tools

LANDFIRE, also known as the Landscape Fire and Resource Management Planning Tools Program, is a vegetation, fire, and fuel characteristic mapping program managed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service and the U.S. Department of the Interior. LANDFIRE represents the first, and only, complete, nationally consistent collection of spatial resource datasets with an ecological foundation that can be used across multiple disciplines.

Designed and developed to be used at the landscape level, LANDFIRE products facilitate national and regional strategic planning and reporting of wildland fire and other natural resource management activities. However, LANDFIRE’s spatially comprehensive dataset can also be adapted to support a variety of local management applications that need current and comprehensive geospatial data.

With over 20 national and insular area geo-spatial layers (e.g. vegetation, fuel, disturbance, etc.), databases, and ecological models available to the public, LANDFIRE not only supports wildland fire management, but also natural resource managers, researchers, and more.
