To the right of each data product, links are provided to download full extent mosaics or databases. Please note that mosaics are not available until the full extent is complete. Data availability is shown on LF's Data Distribution Site (DDS), which offers data downloads at selected extents.
NOTE: To better serve our LF users, the LF 2016 Remap mosaics are now in GeoTIFF format only. ArcGRID will still be supported on the Data Distribution
Site. For more information about LF 2016 Remap mosaics, review the ReadMe.
Comprehensive vegetation and fuels mapping reflects circa 2016 using 2013-2017 imagery.
LF 2014/LF 1.4.0
Reflects vegetation change and disturbance 1999 - 2014.
LF 2012/LF 1.3.0
Reflects vegetation change and disturbance 1999 - 2012.
LF 2010/LF 1.2.0
Reflects vegetation change and disturbance 1999 - 2010.
LF 2008/LF 1.1.0
Updated LF 1.0.5 products to reflect vegetation changes and disturbances 1999 - 2008.
LF 2001/LF 1.0.5
Enhanced an earlier version LF 1.0.0 layers to allow comparison between the circa 2001 Landsat based image data products and LF 1.1.0
LF 2016 Remap - Uses the latest reference datasets to map disturbance and field reference plots for vegetation mapping; Landsat archives to improve identification of surface water, barren and sparse and reduce the impact of seamlines; and lidar information to create continuous structure products and create a circa 2016 base map for fuels mapping. Fuels products will leverage continuous vegetation structure into fuels production.
LF 2014 - Incorporates disturbance & succession through 2014.
LF 2012 - Incorporates disturbance & succession through 2012.
LF 2010 - Refined urban, agriculture, and wetlands and incorporated disturbance & succession through 2010. Created a suite of data layers for U.S. insular areas.
LF 2008 - Started with LF 1.0.5 and incorporated disturbances (fire, vegetation management, weather, etc.) & succession through 2008.
LF 2001 - Refined Existing Vegetation Type (EVT) based on local feedback. Remapped Existing Vegetation Cover (EVC) and Height (EVH) in forested areas. BPS layer refined in western rangelands using Soil Survey Geographic Database (SSURGO)
* The algorithm required a time series of imagery to identify disturbance, imagery from 1984 - 2008 was used; some areas used imagery through 2009 or 2010, if available.
