Description:
Abstract:
Federal wildfire managers often want to know, over large landscapes, where wildfires are likely to occur and how intense they may be. To meet this need we developed a map that we call wildfire hazard potential (WHP) – a raster geospatial product that can help to inform evaluations of wildfire risk or prioritization of fuels management needs across very large spatial scales (millions of acres). Our specific objective with the WHP map was to depict the relative potential for wildfire that would be difficult for suppression resources to contain. To create the 2018 version, we built upon spatial estimates of wildfire likelihood and intensity generated in 2016 with the Large Fire Simulation system (FSim), as well as spatial fuels and vegetation data from LANDFIRE 2012 and point locations of fire occurrence from FPA (ca. 1992 – 2013). With these datasets as inputs, we produced an index of WHP for all of the conterminous United States at 270 meter resolution. We present the final WHP map as continuous integer values. On its own, WHP is not an explicit map of wildfire threat or risk, but when paired with spatial data depicting highly valued resources and assets such as structures or powerlines, it can approximate relative wildfire risk to those specific resources and assets. WHP is also not a forecast or wildfire outlook for any particular season, as it does not include any information on current or forecasted weather or fuel moisture conditions. It is instead intended for long-term strategic fuels management.
Purpose:
This dataset is the continuous wildfire hazard potential (WHP). It is intended for use in strategic wildland fuels and land management planning at mostly regional to national scales.
Supplemental_Information:
This data publication is a second edition that was made available on 10/10/2018. Minor metadata updates were included on 11/13/2019 and 10/27/2022. The first edition (https://doi.org/10.2737/RDS-2015-0047) represents WHP mapped in 2014, depicting landscape conditions as of 2010. This second edition is the 2018 version, and depicts landscape conditions as of 2012. (See \Supplements\WHP2014_to_2018_ChangeSummary.pdf for a summary of the changes between the first and second editions of these data.)

To check for the latest version of the WHP geospatial data and map graphics, as well as documentation on the mapping process, see: https://www.firelab.org/project/wildland-fire-potential.

Details about the Wildfire Hazard Potential mapping process can be found in Dillon et al. 2015. Steps described in this paper about weighting for crown fire potential have been dropped in the 2018 version due to changes to the FSim modeling products used as the primary inputs to WHP mapping.

The FSim products used to create the 2018 version of WHP can be found here in Short et al. 2016.

Please note: This dataset is the product of modeling, and as such carries an inherent degree of error and uncertainty. Users must read and fully comprehend the metadata and other available documentation prior to data use. Users should acknowledge the Originator when using this dataset as a source. Users should share data products developed using the source dataset with the Originator. No warranty is made by the Fire Modeling Institute (FMI) or USDA Forest Service as to the accuracy, reliability, or completeness of these data for individual use or aggregate use with other data, or for purposes not intended by FMI. Inputs to the WHP map, and therefore the WHP map as well, are intended to support 1) national (all states) strategic planning, 2) regional (single large states or groups of smaller states) planning, and 3) strategic and possibly tactical planning for large sub-regional landscapes (including significant portions of states or multiple federal administrative entities). The applicability of the WHP map to support fire and land management planning on smaller areas will vary by location and specific intended use. Further investigation by local and regional experts should be conducted to inform decisions regarding local applicability. It is the sole responsibility of the local user, using product metadata and local knowledge, to determine if and/or how the WHP map can be used for particular areas of interest. The WHP map is not intended to replace local products where they exist, but rather serve as a back-up by providing wall-to-wall cross-boundary data coverage. It is the responsibility of the user to be familiar with the value, assumptions, and limitations of WHP map. Managers and planners must evaluate the WHP map according to the scale and requirements specific to their needs. Spatial information may not meet National Map Accuracy Standards. This information may be updated without notification.

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
WHP, by its nature, is an abstract index of fire potential. Its accuracy, therefore, cannot be quantitatively measured. It is intended to be a relative measure of wildfire hazard potential. The FSim burn probability (BP) used as a primary input to the WHP map was objectively evaluated and calibrated within 128 distinct regions of contemporary wildfire activity (pyromes) across CONUS, using historic reference data on fire size distributions and annual area burned. More information on the FSim modeling outputs can be found in Short et al. 2016 (https://doi.org/10.2737/RDS-2016-0034). Some LANDFIRE fuels and vegetation data used as inputs have also been evaluated for efficacy and calibrated to meet the objectives of LANDFIRE. More information can be found at: https://www.landfire.gov/lf_evaluation.php.
Quantitative_Attribute_Accuracy_Assessment:
Attribute_Accuracy_Explanation:
Quantitative accuracy cannot be evaluated.
Logical_Consistency_Report:
Pixel values in this grid should be within the range of 0 to 100,000. Values in this grid were used to create the classified version of 2018 WHP, using the following class breaks: very low <= 61; low >61 and <= 178; moderate > 178 and <= 489; high > 489 and <= 1986; very high > 1986. The continuous and classified WHP products should be logically consistent with each other.
Completeness_Report:
All pixels that are part of the land and water of the conterminous United States have valid non-negative values. Zero values are valid and typically represent non-burnable land cover (water, snow/ice, developed, agriculture).
