Abstract:
LANDFIRE's (LF) Annual Disturbance (Dist) product provides temporal and spatial information related to landscape change. Dist depicts areas that have experienced a disturbance within a given year of 4.5 hectares (11 acres) or larger, along with cause and severity. Information sources include national fire mapping programs such as Monitoring Trends in Burn Severity (MTBS), Burned Area Reflectance Classification (BARC), and Rapid Assessment of Vegetation Condition after Wildfire (RAVG), local user/agency contributed data (LF Events Geodatabase), and remotely sensed Landsat imagery. Composite Landsat image pairs from the current year, prior year, and following year are spectrally compared to determine where change occurred and its corresponding severity. Additionally, vegetation indices (Normalized Differenced Vegetation Index [NDVI] and Normalized Burn Ratio [NBR]) serve as inputs into the Multi-Index Integrated Change Algorithm (MIICA) (Jin et al. 2013); MIICA outputs and differenced products (e.g., dNDVI and dNBR) are used to locate change. Predictive modeling based on the previous 10 years of disturbance data provides an additional dataset useful for locating disturbance. Image analysts use the aforementioned datasets separately or in combination to isolate true change from false change (e.g., change caused by stark differences in phenology rather than a true disturbance event). The accuracy of the final product is often related to the quality of the Landsat image composite. Areas with persistent cloud cover are particularly challenging (e.g., the northeast US). Fire caused disturbances sourced from MTBS may contain data gaps where clouds, smoke, water or Landsat7 SLC-off stripes exist. Models trained from pre-fire and post-fire Landsat data are used to fill the gaps. The result is continuous severity and extent information for all MTBS fire disturbances. MTBS pixels derived from gap filling techniques, such as modeling, are noted as such in their corresponding attribute table. Smaller fires that do not meet the size criteria set forth by MTBS) may be attributed as a Burned Area Essential Climate Variable (BAECV), which are only produced for the lower 48 states. Causality and severity information assigned to a disturbance are prioritized by source, with the highest priorities reserved for fire mapping programs (MTBS, BARC and RAVG) followed by user-contributed events contained in the LF Events Geodatabase, and lastly, Landsat image based change.
Purpose:
LF Remap is a comprehensive mapping effort that uses recent data to create a new base map product suite that better represents contemporary conditions. LF Remap represents circa 2016 ground conditions and is designed to produce vegetation, disturbance, and fuels products that inform wildland fire and ecological decision systems. LF Remap has improved past methodologies and processes to incorporate current satellite imagery, contemporary data sources, and the latest software and hardware technologies. Final LF Remap products offer significant improvements to all previous LF versions (read more about versions here https://www.landfire.gov/lf_schedule.php).
LF Remap products are designed to facilitate national and regional level strategic fire and resource management planning and reporting of management activities. The principal purposes of the products include providing, 1) national level, landscape scale geospatial products to support fire and fuels management planning, and 2) consistent fuels products to support fire planning, analysis, and budgeting to evaluate fire management alternatives.
Products are created at a 30 meter raster; however, the applicability of products varies by location and specific use. LF 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 LF products to support fire and land management planning on smaller areas will vary by product, location, and specific use. Managers and planners must evaluate LF products according to the scale and requirements specific to their needs.

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
Products were tested to ensure that each attribute is represented consistently across all data sets. Attributes were not validated against in person observations.
Logical_Consistency_Report:
The products were pixel "truth" tested for consistency of land or water characteristics across all products.
Completeness_Report:
Products were formally tested to ensure that valid data was produced for all pixels. Each product was then validated and tested for duplicates, omissions, and errors.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Beginning in 2016 LF Remap products were created using recent advances in image compositing, tiling algorithms, and faster computing hardware to ensure that LF products remained relevant. LF Remap leveraged the Landsat archive, lidar data, and user contributed field plot data compiled into the LF Reference Database (LFRDB), to create new base map vegetation products. Reference resources included, but were not limited to, Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) program plot data (USFS https://fia.fs.fed.us/), Landsat Dynamic Surface Water Extent [(DSWE) USGS https://www.usgs.gov/land-resources/nli/landsat/], the National Land Cover Dataset [(NLCD) USGS https://www.mrlc.gov/data], and National Agricultural Statistics Service [(NASS) USDA - https://www.nass.usda.gov/]. To read more about LF reference resources go to https://www.landfire.gov/reference.php. Information about LF Remap product testing is available by request or via the website at https://www.landfire.gov.
