Abstract

LANDFIRE is approaching its��� 10th birthday, and moving forward. A partnership between the U.S. Department of the Interior; the Forest Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture; and The Nature Conservancy, LANDFIRE delivered national spatial data sets representing conditions in 2000, 2008, and 2010, and the first comprehensive descriptions of all major ecosystems in the United States. The impetus of the LANDFIRE Program (formerly the LANDFIRE Project) was to provide foundational information that could support regional and national fire and natural resource management planning programs, such as Fire Programs Analysis (FPA), and the Hazardous Fuels Prioritization and Application System (HFPAS). However, LANDFIRE as it exists today is more than originally envisioned and may serve as complementary or supplementary information for more local applications as well.
