Tall Timbers Awarded a USFS Grant for the Landfire Project in the Southeast

By Joe Noble, GIS/IT Coordinator

The Tall Timbers GIS Lab formalized a five-year agreement with the USFS in July 2009. Funding was received through October 1, 2009 to address issues with LANDFIRE data in the South East.

LANDFIRE, also known as the Landscape Fire and Resource Management Planning Tools Project, is a five-year, multi-partner project producing consistent and comprehensive maps and data describing vegetation, wildland fuel, and fire regimes across the United States. It is a shared project between the wildland fire management programs of the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service and U.S. Department of the Interior. The project has four components: the LANDFIRE Prototype, LANDFIRE Rapid Assessment, LANDFIRE National, and Training/Technology Transfer.

The GIS Lab will be addressing non-burnable agriculture issues as well as assisting with model development through October 1, 2009. Next year we hope to receive funding to study post disturbance succession in the South East.
