The LANDFIRE existing vegetation layers describe the following elements of existing vegetation for each LANDFIRE mapping zone: existing vegetation type, existing vegetation canopy cover, and existing vegetation height. Vegetation is mapped using predictive landscape models based on extensive field reference data, satellite imagery, biophysical gradient layers, and classification and regression trees.DATA SUMMARY: The existing vegetation type (EVT) data layer represents the current distribution of the terrestrial ecological systems classification developed by NatureServe for the western Hemisphere (http://www.natureserve.org/publications/usEcologicalsystems.jsp). A terrestrial ecological system is defined as a group...

The LANDFIRE fuel data describe the composition and characteristics of both surface fuel and canopy fuel. Specific products include fire behavior fuel models, canopy bulk density (CBD), canopy base height (CBH), canopy cover (CC), canopy height (CH), fuel characterization classification system (FCCS), and fuel loading models (FLMs). These data may be implemented within models to predict the behavior and effects of wildland fire. These data are useful for strategic fuel treatment prioritization and tactical assessment of fire behavior and effects.DATA SUMMARY: The LANDFIRE fuel loading model (FLM) classification system is based on unique sets of fuel characteristics that simplify the input of fuel loadings into fire...

This specific Utah dataset displays vegatation departure between current vegetation conditions and reference vegetation conditions) index represented using a 0 to 100 percent scale, with 100 representing maximum departure.The Utah dataset was reclassified so additional layer values representing Water (111), Snow / Ice (112), Urban (120), Barren (131), Sparsely Vegetated BpS (132), and Agriculture (180) are NO LONGER INCLUDED in this dataset. Please see general Landfire description below for more detailed information on the VDEP product.Broad-scale alterations of historical fire regimes and vegetation dynamics have occurred in many landscapes in the U.S. through the combined influence of land management practices,...

Broad-scale alterations of historical fire regimes and vegetation dynamics have occurred in many landscapes in the U.S. through the combined influence of land management practices, fire exclusion, ungulate herbivory, insect and disease outbreaks, climate change, and invasion of non-native plant species. The LANDFIRE Project produces maps of simulated historical fire regimes and vegetation conditions using the LANDSUM landscape succession and disturbance dynamics model. The LANDFIRE Project also produces maps of current vegetation and measurements of current vegetation departure from simulated historical reference conditions. These maps support fire and landscape management planning outlined in the goals of the National...

The LANDFIRE existing vegetation layers describe the following elements of existing vegetation for each LANDFIRE mapping zone: existing vegetation type, existing vegetation canopy cover, and existing vegetation height. Vegetation is mapped using predictive landscape models based on extensive field reference data, satellite imagery, biophysical gradient layers, and classification and regression trees.DATA SUMMARY: The existing vegetation cover (EVC) data layer depicts percent canopy cover by life form, and is an important input to other LANDFIRE mapping efforts. EVC is generated separately for tree, shrub and herbaceous life forms using training data and a series of geospatial predictor layers. Plots from the Forest...

LANDFIRE Vegetation Condition Class (VCC) raster data set, clipped to the boundary of the Sourthern Rockies Landscape Conservation Cooperative (SRLCC). VCC data quantifies the extent to which vegetation types have departed from simulated historical reference conditions. A VCC level of 1 represents a low level of departure, VCC 2 is moderate departure and VCC 3 is high departure. Other land cover categories are barren, sparsely vegetated, agriculture, urban, water and snow/ice. The attached Excel spreadsheet shows the area (square km) covered by each category, in the entire SRLCC and within its level III ecoregions. There is also an attached GIF preview image that shows how the raster data appear in ArcMAP. LANDFIRE...
