A public version of the LANDFIRE (LF) 2016 Remap (LF 2.0.0) Reference Database (LFRDB) is available. The LFRDB contains a subset of the data and attributes used for LF National and LF Remap production. The Public LFRDB includes vegetation and fuel data that were largely amassed from existing information resources such as:

Updated plot information was compiled for LF Remap and used to inform existing vegetation mapping. This new data was added to the public LFRDB for LF Remap.

Note: The LFRDB was not updated for LF 2020.

Data archived in the LF Remap Public LFRDB include:

natural community occurrences
estimates of canopy cover and height per plant taxon
measurements of individual trees
occurrence of exotics plants
biomass estimates of downed woody material
depth or biomass estimates of litter and duff layers
percentage cover and height of shrub and herb layers

Major Public LFRDB attributes derived from the sampling data include:

Certain proprietary and/or sensitive data were removed in the public database. Consult the table lutdtVisitsSourceID in the database regarding data sources.

The Public LFRDB can be used as input to spatial and non-spatial vegetation models and is applicable for ground truthing and accuracy assessments for a variety of modeling and mapping efforts.

New and Improved LF Auto-Keys were developed for LF Remap: learn about the Auto-Keys process redesign, which are used to determine existing vegetation type classification based on plot data in the LFRDB — Developing Auto-Keys for LANDFIRE Vegetation Mapping: 2014-2015 CONUS Project Report
