Abstract:
Introduction: The LF existing vegetation layers describe the following elements of existing vegetation for each LF mapping zone: existing vegetation type, existing vegetation canopy cover, and existing vegetation height. Vegetation is mapped using predictive landscape models based on extensive field reference data, satellite imagery, biophysical gradient layers, and classification and regression trees. Abstract: The MoD-FIS for the Great Basin and Southwest is based on the vegetation greenness values from the Landsat-based Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) and its relationship to LF Existing Vegetation Cover (EVC) for the herbaceous and shrub lifeforms. The current year NDVI values are compared to a ten year minimum, average, and maximum values provided by WELD (Web-enabled Landsat data). This 30 meter resolution data is the same scale as LF EVC and was temporally analyzed for the years 2003 through 2012. From this analysis values that range from barren to sparse and then 10% cover classes for herbaceous pixels through 99% cover were found for minimum, average, and maximum NDVI. Average NDVI values were found for all shrub pixels within the analysis area. Several key components that were developed within the LF Fine Fuel Dynamic (LF_FFD) are described below to outline the workings of the system:A ten year (2003-2012) average NDVI value was calculated for each pixel within the analysis area (see map in Appendix A) which stretches from west Texas to Southeast Washington State.-The pixel average NDVI was combined with LF EVC and analyzed to calculate a weighted average NDVI value for each cover class by LF map zone.-A standard deviation test was developed for the average of all the map zones within the analysis area (14 map zones); whereas map zones whose weighted average value by cover class that was not within one standard deviation to the over-all average the zone was omitted as an outlier for that cover class (see relationship Appendix A).-A median value was then calculated for the accepted map zones values from the standard deviation test.-The median value was then used in a regression model from which the resulting equation is applied to NDVI to arrive at a cover class. That percent cover is then Re-classed through LF cover classifications to determine the NDVI predicted herbaceous and shrub mapping by cover class.-FBFM40 fuel models were developed for the NDVI predicted increase and/or decrease in herbaceous fuel cover.-The fuel rulesets for change in fuel model by predicted herbaceous cover were developed in grid format for the 10 year average, ten year maximum, and the year 2012 for testing.-Current year NDVI values are mapped by these cover and fuel model rules to adjust the amount of burnable fine fuel available across the analysis area on an annual basis.Shrub cover mapping-Shrubs mapping was conducted using the 10 year average NDVI rather than current year NDVI so change from year to year in the shrub lifeform will not be apparent.-10 to 19% shrub cover was added to the herbaceous lifeform cover class-With such sparse shrubs per pixel it was felt that if the reflectance picked up significant vegetation it would be herbaceous and that herbaceous vegetation would determine the fire behavior not the shrubs within those pixels.-Since NDVI is not zone specific seam lines that had previously existed in the LF data do not exist in this product.Barren and Sparse-The average NDVI linear model is used to determine the breakpoints for Barren and Sparse and percent cover.-Sparse breakpoints are at 0.1 to 9% cover and is given a burnable fuel model (GR1). Areas with 0% cover are Barren (had No vegetation growth within 10 year stack)The provisional MoD-FIS existing vegetation height (PM_EVH) data layer is an important input to LF modeling efforts. Canopy height is generated separately for tree, shrub and herbaceous cover life forms using training data and a series of geospatial data layers. Plots from the Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) program of USDA Forest Service () were used as the training data for tree canopy height mapping. EVH is determined by the average height weighted by species cover and based on existing vegetation type (EVT) life-form assignments. Dominant life-form height of each plot is then binned as follows: (A) Tree classes; 0-5 m, 5-10 m, 10-25 m, 25-50 m, and greater than 50 m, (B) Shrub classes; 0-0.5 m, 0.5-1.0 m, 1.0-3.0 m, greater than 3.0 m, (C) Herbaceous vegetation classes; 0-0.5 m; 0.5-1.0 m, greater than 1 m. Decision tree models using field reference data and Landsat imagery, digital elevation model data, and biophysical gradient data, are then developed separately for each of the three life forms using C5 software. Life-form specific cross-validation error matrices are generated during this process to assess levels of accuracy of the models. Decision tree relationships are then used to generate life-form specific height class spatial data layers, which are later merged into a single composite height data layer. The final EVH layer is evaluated and rectified through a series of QA/QC measures to ensure that the life-form of the cover code matched the life-form of the existing vegetation type.

Purpose:
LANDFIRE data products are designed to facilitate national- and regional-level strategic planning and reporting of management activities. Data products are created at a 30-meter grid spatial resolution raster data set; however, the applicability of data products varies by location and specific use. Principal purposes of the data products include providing, 1) national-level, landscape-scale geospatial products to support fire and fuels management planning, and, 2) consistent fuels data to support fire planning, analysis, and budgeting to evaluate fire management alternatives. Users are advised to evaluate the data carefully for their applications.

Use_Constraints:
Although LANDFIRE products are delivered as 30-meter pixels, they should not be used at the individual pixel level or on small groups of pixels. LANDFIRE products were designed to support 1) national (all states) strategic planning, 2) regional (single large states or groups of smaller states), and 3) strategic/tactical planning for large sub-regional landscapes and Fire Management Units (FMUs) (such as significant portions of states or multiple federal administrative entities). The applicability of LANDFIRE products to support fire and land management planning on smaller areas will vary by product, location, and specific use. Further investigation by local and regional experts should be conducted to inform decisions regarding local applicability. However, it is the responsibility of the local user, using LANDFIRE metadata and local knowledge, to determine if and/or how LANDFIRE can be used for particular areas of interest. LANDFIRE products are not intended to replace local products, but rather serve as a back-up by providing wall-to-wall cross-boundary products. It is the responsibility of the user to be familiar with the value, assumptions, and limitations of LANDFIRE products. Managers and planners must evaluate LANDFIRE data according to the scale and requirements specific to their needs.

Process_Description:
LANDFIRE Refresh 2001 (lf_1.0.5): Imagery used in LANDFIRE National covered a span of years and several large wildland fires may not be represented for the time period used in that locale. LANDFIRE circa 2001 ensures wildland fires through 2001 are represented. Additional improvements found in Refresh 2001 include resolving inconsistencies along the international borders and updating aspects of the following: riparian and wetlands areas, agricultural and urban vegetation types as burnable, and adjusting the extent of barren and water land cover types.
