    Description

    The multi-partner Greater Huachuca Mountains fire planning effort involves over 500,000 acres of public and private lands. This large area supports distinct landscapes that have evolved with fire. Utilizing GIS as a tool, the United States Forest Service (USFS), General Ecosystem Survey (GES), and Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) State Soil Geographic Database (STATSGO) maps were refined using digital elevation model derived data, geology maps, existing vegetation maps, and expert knowledge. The resulting seamless map coverage will help define and characterize fire management units. It stratifies the planning area into distinct units suitable for modeling landscape-scale historical fire regimes and determining current condition classes.
