Service Description: This map shows Wildland Fire Potential that was developed to delineate and prioritize the wildland fire potential for the United States. The purpose of this map service is to display the areas within the continental United States that had different levels (ranging from very low to very high) of fire potential. The data is based on three primary sub-products: fuel potential, fire weather potential, and fire occurrence potential. The Rocky Mountain Research Station (RMRS) produces tools to better understand fire management. Wildland Fire Potential delineates areas based on fire intensity, weather, frequency, and size, which was then classified into a relative ranking of fire potential from very low to very high. Susceptibility to fire is also connected to vegetation type, proximity to urban areas, percentage of dead vegetation, and amount of time since the last burn. This map service represents one of seven standard input layers which support the USFS State and Private Forestry Potential Assessment Redesign Project. The data is developed for national and regional assessments. The data was downloaded from here.
