Monitoring Trends in Burn Severity Fire Occurrence Locations (Feature Layer)

The Monitoring Trends in Burn Severity MTBS project assesses the frequency, extent, and magnitude (size and severity) of all large wildland fires (includes wildfire, wildland fire use, and prescribed fire) in the conterminous United States (CONUS), Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico for the period of 1984 through 2014. All fires reported as greater than 1,000 acres in the western U.S. and greater than 500 acres in the eastern U.S. are mapped across all ownerships. MTBS produces a series of geospatial and tabular data for analysis at a range of spatial, temporal, and thematic scales and are intended to meet a variety of information needs that require consistent data about fire effects through space and time. This map layer is a vector point of the location of all currently inventoried and mappable fires occurring between calendar year 1984 and 2014 for the continental United States, Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico. The point location represents the geographic centroid for the _BURN_AREA_BOUNDARY polygon(s) associated with each fire. Metadata
