The Nature Conservancy
LANDFIRE (also known as Landscape Fire and Resource Management Planning Tools) is an interagency vegetation, fire, and fuel characteristics mapping program, sponsored by the United States Department of the Interior (DOI) and the United States Department of Agriculture, Forest Service.
LANDFIRE produces a comprehensive, consistent, scientifically credible suite of spatial data layers for the entire United States.
LANDFIRE was initiated based on agencies’ needs for mapped data that support prioritization of hazardous fuel reduction and ecological conservation activities and also support strategic resource management initiatives, such as the Healthy Forests Restoration Act, Community Wildfire Protection Plans, the National Fire Plan, fire management planning, stewardship of public and private lands, and natural resource management.
