LANDFIRE 2014 (140) NGDA Products

July 28, 2023

LANDFIRE (LF) 2014 incorporates landscape change and disturbances, such as wildland fire, fuel and vegetation treatments, insects and disease, storm damage, and invasive plants that occurred in 2013 and 2014.
This update includes:

responses to vegetation successional change in forested types
revisions to address discrepancies between map products and known field conditions

The LF 2014 update also:

supports wildland fire and natural resource management, planning, research, analysis, and assessments
uses Landsat imagery, point, and polygon data 2013-2014
incorporates new or updated institutional data sources
changes data only where vegetation changed due to successional change or disturbance
updates fuel products based on vegetation products

The LF 2014 update strategy applies a consistent approach to combine geospatial data depicting areas of disturbance with Remote Sensing of Landscape Change (RSLC) derived data to develop the disturbance layers. Data from combinations of Landsat satellite imagery, fire program data (e.g., Monitoring Trends in Burn Severity (MTBS)), cooperator-provided field data, and other ancillary data (e.g., Protected Area Database (PAD)) are used to locate and characterize large wildfires.
