Florida Fire Occurrence Dataset

forest fire

The Florida Fire dataset is a comprehensive, spatially explicit map of wild and prescribed fire occurrences across the state. This dataset was developed by Tall Timbers Research Station for Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and relies on USGS Burned Area products which combines change detection algorithms, spectral indices, and reference areas with LANDSAT Imagery. The resulting product delineates burned areas at a 30 m pixel resolution for fires which occurred between 2006 – 2018 and includes fire regime metrics. Number of times burned, year last burned, and time since previous fire metrics are included in the dataset. Additional years will be added annually.
