Chris Toney (US Forest Service, RMRS/LANDFIRE Project) and Jeff Jones (RMRS Wildland Fire Management RD&A, Whitefish, MT), presented the webinar titled LANDFIRE Data Access Tool, on February 15, 2012 at 12 pm MST. The LANDFIRE Data Access Tool (LFDAT) allows users to download LANDFIRE layers from the data distribution site directly into ArcMap. The download extent is defined by the user within ArcMap. The tool allows the user to: re-project LANDFIRE data into locally used projections; create & download a Landscape (lcp) file for use with FlamMap & FARSITE; deconstruct an lcp file to create individual ArcGrids; and join attribute data to ArcGrids. In the webinar you will learn how to access, install, and use LFDAT. Learn more at: This webinar was hosted by the Southwest Fire Science Consortium.
