The Interagency Wildland Fire Geodatabase Project is a collaborative approach to defining a standard geodatabase schema to be used for wildfire data. The intent is to promote and support data sharing and collaboration between agencies by providing a framework for storing wildfire data that is common across agencies while providing a flexible design that allows for agencies to manage additional local attributes.
This survey has already been released to USDA Forest Service employees. Their original comments will be included with this survey. They need not respond a second time.
As part of this project, a Fire Management Unit (FMU) data standard has been drafted. This dataset intends to capture Fire Management Units described as “A land management area definable by objectives, management constraints, topographic features, access, values to be protected, political boundaries, fuel types, major fire regime groups, etc. that set it apart from the characteristics of an adjacent FMU. The FMU may have dominant management objectives and pre-selected strategies assigned to accomplish these objectives.” (NWCG definition). These FMU are delineated in Land /Resource Management Plans or Fire Management Plans.
Once adopted, this standard will guide us as we implement the Interagency Geodatabase design
We are seeking your review and comments on this proposed standard.
Once you complete the survey on one topic, you will have the opportunity to again complete it on another topic. You may complete this as many times as you need.
Again, thank you for your valuable input.
