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 Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) data standard has been drafted. Wildland Urban Interface is defined as the line, area, or zone where structures and other human development meet or intermingle with undeveloped wildland or vegetative fuels. This standard does not identify a method for delineating wildland urban interface, but outlines a basic shared structure for storing WUI features, understanding that features may overlap and may be determined using different and sometimes conflicting methods.
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.
