Fire Regime Condition Class

Data format: Personal GeoDatabase Feature Class

File or table name: FireRegimeConditionClass

Coordinate system: Albers Conical Equal Area

Theme keywords: Fire Regime, Condition Class

Abstract: This data set is the stand fire coverage created from INFORMS and Most Similar Neighbor imputations for the Malheur National Forest and is based on 2003 Landsat 5 scene. It created various fire attributes for all forest and non_forest attributes. Fire regime condition class is included but only for forested polygons.

FGDC and ESRI Metadata:

Metadata elements shown with blue text are defined in the Federal Geographic Data Committee's (FGDC) Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM). Elements shown with green text are defined in the ESRI Profile of the CSDGM. Elements shown with a green asterisk (*) will be automatically updated by ArcCatalog. ArcCatalog adds hints indicating which FGDC elements are mandatory; these are shown with gray text.

Process description:
created by Ed Uebler using Most Similar Neighbor analysis 	
Assigns inventory data to stands that have no inventory data by   comparing reflective signatures of the polygons from Landsat Imagery and finding the most similar neighbor. 
 The Coverage contains a bunch of information used to derive the FRCC    The infomation comes from the Fuels anaylsis tools in INFORMS.
Last 2 attribute columns: ECOMSNFV, call of condition class based on MSN analysis only. ECOPIMSN, call of condition class based on mixture of MSN and PI interpretation.
