The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) is working to understand the needs of the end-user community and identify how remotely sensed data is used. This survey is part of an ongoing, multi-faceted effort to engage with the end-user community. These survey results—along with additional data collection efforts—will be used to inform the development of the next generation of weather and environmental satellites.Continue Reading
LANDFIRE is looking for data to help update and improve our existing vegetation and wildland fuel products.
The primary focus of this data call is to collect FY 2020 disturbance and treatment activities. Disturbance and treatment data from 2017-2019 that were not previously submitted to LANDFIRE or other National Authoritative databases, are also welcome. The secondary focus is to collect both vegetation/fuel plot data and invasive species polygons or plots.
The data submission deadline is November 30, 2020. Please make every effort to submit your data by November 30, as LANDFIRE is relying heavily on user contributed data for this update. LANDFIRE is transitioning back to an update schedule after being focused on LF 2016 Remap. LANDFIRE is asking for data to be submitted earlier than in the past to help facilitate the production of annually updated products with a goal of data release before June of each year. This transition may take a couple of years to reach recognizing that several disturbance years (2017-2020) need to be cataloged and processed.
