Title: FireOccurrence
Geospatial_Data_Presentation_Form: vector digital data
Description:
Abstract:
The FireOccurrence point layer represents ignition points from which individual wildland fires started.
Purpose:
The FireOccurrence point layer represents ignition points from which individual wildland fires started. Data are maintained at the Forest/District level, or their equivalent, to track the occurrence and the origin of individual wildland fires. Records in FireOccurrence include historical fire point records from a variety of sources. Since 1986, FIRESTAT, the Fire Statistics System computer application, has been the authoritative data source for all wildland fire occurrences on National Forest System Lands or National Forest-Protected Lands. FIRESTAT is used by the USFS to enter and maintain information from the Individual Wildland Fire Report (FS-5100-29). The Individual Wildland Fire Report is the record of fire occurrence required of all Forest Service units. FireOccurrence records include information entered into FIRESTAT, in addition to fire occurrences which pre-date the use of FIRESTAT. Note: It is understood that fires which pre-date the use of FIRESTAT, may or may not represent the actual ignition point of any given wildland fire. Locations of historical wildfires are often a direct result of the rules for fire reporting at the time they were collected. Prescribed fires are tracked in the Forest Service Activity Tracking System (FACTS) and should not be included in the FireOccurrence layer. In the event that a prescribed fire escapes, an Individual Wildland Fire Report is then required, and the fire location would be included in the FireOccurrence layer for only the area burned after escape. FireOccurrence could be used to store historical ignitions pre-FIRESTAT, as temporary storage for ignition data that is not yet in FIRESTAT, or to provide quality control for verifying/correcting ignition locations and updating FIRESTAT (see attributes FIRESTATQC).

The Forest Service uses the most current and complete data available. GIS data and product accuracy may vary. They may be developed from sources of differing accuracy; accurate only at certain scales; based on modeling or interpretation; incomplete while being created or revised; etc. Using GIS products for purposes other than those for which they were created, may yield inaccurate or misleading results. The Forest Service reserves the right to correct, update, modify or replace GIS products without notification.

Attribute:
Attribute_Label: LatDD83
Attribute_Definition:
The latitude of the wildfire point of origin specified in decimal degrees. Target level of precision is 5 decimal places. (ArcGIS: Precision=11; Scale=5
Field included as a requirement of NWCG (National Wildfire Coordinating Group).
Reference FIRESTAT: Field Name “Origin Latitude”.

Attribute:
Attribute_Label: LongDD83
Attribute_Definition:
The longitude of the wildfire point of origin specified in decimal degrees. Target level of precision is 5 decimal places. (ArcGIS: Precision=12; Scale=5).
Field included as a requirement of NWCG (National Wildfire Coordinating Group).

Attribute:
Attribute_Label: FireTypeCategory
Attribute_Definition:
FireTypeCategory describes the type of incident to which the USFS wildfire community responded. By default for the USFS, this field will always be set to “WF” (Wildfire) since that is the only event being captured in this data layer.
Field included as a requirement of NWCG (National Wildfire Coordinating Group).

By default for the USFS, this field will always be set to “WF” (Wildfire).
Attribute:
Attribute_Label: PointType
Attribute_Definition:
Description of the type of point. This field will default to "Ignition" since that is what FIRESTAT uses. If the location is obviously not an "ignition" point, then users have options to use other values and explain in Comments. “General” means general location of where the fire is believed to occur - not the confirmed ignition point and not a centroid. “Unknown” is most often used for legacy data where there is no record of how the point location was determined.

Attribute:
Attribute_Label: FIRESTATQC
Attribute_Definition:
An indicator that the fire record in FireOccurrence has been verified to match the corresponding fire report data in FIRESTAT. When FIRESTAT data exists, FireOccurrence tabular data will match data in FIRESTAT.

Attribute_Domain_Values:
Unrepresentable_Domain:
Yes, No, or NA. Yes = The record was verified with FIRESTAT, No = The record was not verified with FIRESTAT, NA = The record is not in FIRESTAT.
