Summary

Fire polygons from the "fire history" layer from the BLM Alaska Interagency Coordination Center (www.fire.ak.blm.gov) and the Canadian Interagency Forest Fire Centre (CIFFC) website at (http://www.ciffc.ca) were merged. In Canada, fire polygons from the Yukon, Northwest Territories, and British Columbia. Year was truncated to 1965 because it was the earliest coverage for the 4 datasets (Alaska, Yukon, Northwest Territories, and British Columbia). Fire polygons include information such as fire name and year/month burned.
