Description:
Abstract:
Fire Management Units (FMU's) are the basic building block for the fire management plan and Fire Program Analysis. An FMU is any land management area definable by objectives, management constraints, topographic features, access, values to be protected, political boundaries, fuel types, major fuel regime groups, and so on that set it apart from the management characteristics of the adjacent unit. It is represented spatially by a single polygon. An area of the planning unit that can be represented by a set of fire behavior data based on a one or more fuel models, slope class, and set of weather data. Each FMU is part of a Fire Planning Unit (FPU). This data set can be developed in several ways using both spatial analysis and or registered base maps. Information to consider is Topography, Vegetative Conditions, Land Management Plan Direction, Historic Fire Occurrence, and Historic Weather Patterns. Associated National Application: The Fire Program Analysis (FPA) project is to develop a common, interagency system for wildfire preparedness analysis, planning, and budgeting. It is a joint initiative between the five Federal Wildland fire management agencies. <http://www.fpa.nifc.gov>
Purpose:
The purpose of this feature class is to depict the boundaries of Fire Management Units
Supplemental_Information:
RO Template-2007 Some of the products (spatial and tabular) that can facilitate the FMU process are: development of shaded relief, fuels classification, vegetation, fire occurrence, rainfall, and fire response area displays, either digital or hardcopy.

Comparison with other data sets for the same area from other time periods may be inaccurate due to inconsistencies resulting from changes in photo interpretation, rounding of decimal coordinates during conversion, and mapping conventions over time. Any hardcopies utilizing these data sets shall clearly indicate their source. If the user has modified the data in any way, they are obligated to describe the types of modifications they have performed on the hardcopy map. The user specifically agrees not to misrepresent these data sets, nor to imply that changes made were approved by the USFS.

Title: Softcopy Primary Base Series (PBS)
Other_Citation_Details:
Edition Series (SES) map is a raster image of the USDA Forest Service topographic map, including the collar information, geo-referenced to the UTM grid. It is very similar to the Digital Raster Graphic (DRG) product. The image is generated from the digital file; it is not scanned, except for the contours. It is an automatic by-product of the production process of the Single Edition Quad (SEQ). There are two versions of the file, one with full map collar, and one clipped at the neat line. The files are in Tagged Image File Format (TIFF), and can be displayed and manipulated in ARC/INFO, ArcView, ArcExplorer, and other commonly used graphics software packages.

Process_Description:
Forest fire staff provided paper hardcopy data (polygon format) to create ESRI Shapefiles. The process to create the fire management unit shapefile is either manuscripting or heads-up digitizing. The data set was checked for dangle and label errors. Any errors were corrected and topology built for polygon and arc.

Process_Description:
In the new Southwestern Regional Geodatabase (v1.2), some of the Source_Code and Method attributes have been moved to the main overlaying Feature Class from the Arc Feature Class, or, have gone from Arc Level Metadata to Feature Level Metadata. This was done in order to simplify the geodatabase for editing and maintenance. In many cases, polygons or lines are from a single source and method, which is promoted to the feature level metadata. When the polygons or lines are not from a single source (or dominant source), or use different methods, the code that has the least accuracy associated with the feature has been promoted.
Also, nationally in the Forest Service, attributes that were labeled Source or Source_Code have been changed to Data_Source, which has a slightly different domain. The script and data loading process to version 1.2 automates those changes. Process date on the Lincoln NF 1/2008.
