LANDFIRE (LF) would like to acknowledge and thank everyone who has contributed data.
Disturbance and treatment polygons are processed and maintained in an events geodatabase. The LF Events Geodatabase is used to inform updates to existing vegetation and fuel layers.
LF primary focus for this data call is to collect disturbance and treatment polygons from 2017 to be evaluated for use in the next update. If you submit more recent or older data, LF will archive the data for evaluation and potential use in future mapping updates or comprehensive remaps. Refer to Disturbance Data Processing to learn how LF evaluates and processes polygon data.
