LANDFIRE (LF) delivers three types of data releases:
|base map:||is a comprehensive vegetation and fuels mapping effort of the LF product suite, this mapping uses satellite imagery and LFRDB plot data, for example: LF c2001|
|revision:||a modified data suite of the base map, often necessary before an update, for example: LF 2001|
|update:||a vegetation and fuels mapping effort using the base product suite to more accurately represent current conditions and account for landscape disturbances and succession, for example: LF 2008|
Expected Data Delivery
LANDFIRE (LF) National, delivered in 2009, was the first LF spatial dataset. The vegetation and fuel layers were updated three times to more accurately represent current conditions and account for landscape disturbances: LF 2008 - in 2011, LF 2010 - in 2014, and LF 2012 - in 2015.
LF 2014 delivery schedule:
|CONUS, AK, HI||Reference (released 1/2016)|
|SC-NC-SW||Disturbance, Vegetation, Fuel (released 9/2016)|
|NW-NE-SE||Disturbance, Vegetation, Fuel (released 12/2016)|
|AK||Disturbance, Vegetation, Fuel|
|HI||Disturbance, Vegetation, Fuel|
LF 2015 is coming:
A new base map to the entire product suite, LF 2015 Remap, is expected to be completed in 2019/2020. LF 2015 Remap will take approximately three years to complete followed by regular updates to the vegetation and fuels layers to account for landscape disturbances.
