LANDFIRE – Landscape fire and resource management planning tools

Access LANDFIRE tools.

LANDFIRE is a shared program between the wildland fire management programs of the USDA-FS and DOI, providing landscape scale geo-spatial products to support cross-boundary planning, management, and operations. It provides over 20 national geo-spatial layers (e.g. vegetation, fuel, disturbance, etc.), databases, and ecological models that are available to the public for the US and insular areas.

Great Basin Weather and Climate Dashboard

Access dashboard.

The Great Basin Weather and Climate Dashboard came about from a need to help stakeholders locate the weather and climate information they need to make decisions related to the current drought in the Great Basin. The Dashboard is a joint effort by the Western Regional Climate Center, California and Nevada Applications Program,the USDA Farm Service Agency and the Great Basin LCC.

NEPAssist Tool

Access NEPAssist tool.

NEPAssist is a tool that facilitates the environmental review process and project planning in relation to environmental considerations. The web-based application draws environmental data dynamically from EPA Geographic Information System databases and web services and provides immediate screening of environmental assessment indicators for a user-defined area of interest. These features contribute to a streamlined review process that potentially raises important environmental issues at the earliest stages of project development.

Landscape Similarity Toolbox

Access toolbox.

The Landscape Similarity Toolbox was developed by the Great Basin Landscape Ecology Lab at the University of Nevada to assist scientists and land managers with selecting control sites that are as similar as possible. Although the tools were developed with large-scale landscape treatments in mind, such as prescribed burning, grazing, and forestry actions, they should be applicable to observational studies and smaller scale experiments that aim to capture landscape context.
