SE FireMap Version 1.0

Mac SE FireMapSE FireMap Version 1.0 (BETA)

As part of the ongoing SE FireMap project, a Version 1.0 (BETA) product is now available! This v.1 data can be explored via a Google Earth Engine web viewer and is also available for download on a case-by-case basis through a data use agreement with NRCS and Tall Timbers Research, Inc. This product was developed during the SE FireMap project’s Scoping Phase, offering users an initial burned area product and the opportunity to share feedback as product improvements are developed. An improved SE FireMap product is anticipated in 2022.

This v.1 product maps all detectable fires across nine states in the southeastern United States. The map and associated tools aim to improve fire management in urban and rural communities through remote sensing and track both prescribed fire and wildfires throughout portions of Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas - prioritizing coverage of the historic longleaf pine range.

The v.1 product contains a fire history dataset that was derived from the USGS Burned Area (v2) Products (Hawbaker et al. 2020) and represents the years between 1994 and 2019. Processing by Tall Timbers Research, Inc. resulted in annual rasters and vectors indicating burn presence (with 90-100% probability) for groups of pixels greater than approximately 2.24 acres (e.g., 10 30m pixels, in any arrangement). Please refer to supporting documentation for additional technical details and guidance on data interpretation.
