Screenshot of the USGS Wildfire Hazard and Risk Assessment Clearinghouse. The clearinghouse provides a description and information about the spatial extent, resolution, fire modeling approach, values considered (assets and resources), and vintage of LANDFIRE and fire data used. The aggregated data can help communicate treatment application priorities to DOI landscapes. In addition, this inventory recognizes that no assessment perfectly represents all lands, as values at risk and methodology choices create variation among the assessments. In the near term, this variation creates an opportunity to present a multi-perspective view of treatment priorities at the Bureau or Departmental level. Longer term, this clearinghouse will provide an evaluation of each approach and perform a gap analysis on values at risk, contributing towards new approaches needed to account for treatment priorities across the diversity of DOI lands.
