NIFC GIS and Infrared Operations Fire Data and Products
This data set contains a variety of data and products from the National Interagency Fire Center (NIFC) ftp site for fires that were flown by the WE-CAN and/or BB-FLUX field projects. The data and products can vary by day and fire, but typically include GIS (Geographic Information Systems) data and products as well as fire map products from the Forest Service National Infrared Operations. There are also occasional photographs and other documents sometimes included. A small number of the documents are password protected (we do not have the password). The GIS data are typically in ArcGIS shapefiles and most of the documents are in PDF format.
All of the data and products for an individual fire are in a single file. These files can be quite large (up to 18Gb).
