LANDFIRE, Landscape Fire and Resource Management Planning Tools, is a shared program between the wildland fire management programs of the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service and U.S. Department of the Interior, providing landscape scale geo-spatial products to support cross-boundary planning, management, and operations. This multi-partner program produces consistent, comprehensive, geospatial data and databases that describe vegetation, wildland fuel, and fire regimes across the United States and insular areas. LANDFIRE is a cornerstone of a fully integrated national data information framework developing and improving vegetation and fuels data products based on the best available authoritative data and science in an all lands landscape conservation approach based on inter-agency/inter-organizational collaboration and cooperation. LANDFIRE is acknowledged for management excellence and effective mission delivery. LANDFIRE's mission is to provide agency leaders and managers with a common "all-lands" data set of vegetation and wildland fire/fuels information for strategic fire and resource management planning and analysis. The LANDFIRE website provides data and links to LANDFIRE data, articles/reports, data descriptions, databases, LANDFIRE videos and tutorials, images/maps, websites, and decision making/informational tools. These resources are useful for practitioners in the fields of fire and natural resource management, vegetation, habitat, carbon/climate, research and science, as well as industry/private sector users and teachers. LANDFIRE data products provide data for landscape assessment, analysis, and management. Data and information serve as important data sets in decision support with efforts such as identification of areas with similar characteristics, prioritization exercises, modeling capacity and potential, and improving collaboration between landowners with common data sets and analytics.
