Data Acquisition

GPS for Fire Management & ICS - 2006


Data acquisition

Objective:

Learn Where and How to Acquire GIS Data for Map Making


Data acquisition

  • Summary of Topics:

  • What Data Do You Need?

  • Does it Exist Locally?

  • Web Availability

  • Data for Purchase


Data needs

Data Needs

  • Data requirements depend upon what products the situation unit needs

  • Base data

    • static layers

    • raster data (e.g., DRGs)

    • vector data (e.g., wilderness boundaries)

  • Incident data-

    • data tied directly to an incident (e.g., fire origin)

    • GPS data for points, lines, perimeter


Data needs1

Data Needs

  • Where and How Can You Acquire Base Data?


Data acquisition

Question: Where is your GPS Mission?


Where s the fire

Where’s the Fire?

  • Home Unit

    • ask GIS staff

    • search data library on servers or CDs

  • Traveling

    • get base data before you go

    • may not have internet access

    • GIS data is usually large

    • connect with Local Staff when you arrive


Data acquisition

Download GIS base data from the Internet


Ftp nifc gov

ftp.nifc.gov

  • \Statewide_GIS_Data

    • Interagency ftp site that allows base data download via anonymous login

    • Posting data requires a login

    • Data was posted by BLM Regional Office contacts

    • DRGs and other data are available for the Western US and Alaska


Data acquisition

ftp.nifc.gov


Ftp nifc gov1

ftp.nifc.gov

  • \Incident_Specific_Data

    • Organized by fire name

    • One directory per incident

    • Incident directories

      • GISS request

      • FTP site manager creates

    • Username and password

      • passed on to existing and new teams


Fire data ordering site http firedata cr usgs gov

Fire Data Ordering Sitehttp://firedata.cr.usgs.gov

  • Developed by USGS

    • DRGs, DEMs, shaded relief, DOQs

    • requested projections

  • Vector fire data

    • Free Download

    • MODIS, AVHRR,

    • current fire locations

    • fire perimeters

    • base data layers

*User name and password: FireXdata


Data acquisition

Fire Data Ordering Site

  • Restricted to Fire personnel

  • Access to additional datasets

  • Vector data - ArcIMS extract tool

  • Order custom raster data: DRG, DOQ, DEM, shaded relief with fire number

When you get there get connected

When You Get There…Get Connected

  • Find out who the local GIS folks are….

    • City / County Sheriff support offices

    • Land management agencies GIS coordinators

    • Request a cell phone from the Communications Unit if necessary

    • You may be first on the incident

    • Establish FTP/Internet Connection


Reasons for knowing the locals

Reasons for Knowing the Locals

  • They will inherit the incident

  • They have data that you may benefit from

  • They may be able to help you if you need additional hardware or supplies

    • Example: Plotters (Lease?) or external hard drive.
