The FFI-DataDepot is an online data repository for fire effects monitoring data collected using the FEAT/FIREMON Integrated (FFI) software application. FFI is an interagency desktop application that provides managers with a tool to collect and manage fire effects monitoring plot data in a broad range of ecosystems at the project to landscape scale using standard and custom protocols.

The FFI-DataDepot supports fire ecologists/planners/managers, researchers, and others who assess fuels treatment objectives, treatment effectiveness, changes in fuel loads, and changes to vegetation structure and composition. It stores plot-scale data collected with all the FFI protocols, including understory vegetation, trees, and fuels. Reports include data summarized by plot or stratified by user-defined variables. Currently, data are limited to those collected by the NPS Fire Ecology program but will be expanded in the future.

Users must access the FFI-DataDepot through IFTDSS and is available to anyone with a .gov email address. See the Help tab for more information about getting access trough IFTDSS.
