Objective:

Learn Where and How to Acquire GIS Data for Map Making

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 Needs
  • Where and How Can You Acquire Base Data?
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
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
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

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.
