Description
Abstract USFS, State Forestry, BLM, and DOI fire occurrence point locations from 1987 to 2008 were combined and converted into a fire occurrence probability or density grid using the point statistic spatial analyst tool in ArcGIS. The fire occurrence point data was supplied by NM State Forestry, BLM, BIA, and USFS. The fire occurrence density layer was created by The Nature Conservancy in New Mexico in 2009.
Purpose Gives value to areas where fires are likely to occur assuming that there will be an increase in probability of a fire occurring in areas where they have occurred in the past

Overview Description
Entity and Attribute Overview The data of the New Mexico Statewide Natural Resources Assessment was organized around eight core data themes suggested in the 2008 Farm Bill. The eight core data themes include: Fish and Wildlife Habitat (Biodiversity), Development Risk (Potential), Economic Development (Potential), Forest Health, Fragmentation, Green Infrastructure, Water Quality and Supply, and Wildfire Risk. For each core data theme, models were developed and served as the foundation for identifying the priority landscapes within New Mexico for the Statewide Strategy and Response Plan. While the 2008 Farm Bill provided the framework for the models developed, the Forest and Watershed Health Plan provided the vision for the content of each model and placed emphasis on expanding the scope to include all resources, not just forest resources. Technical teams, comprised of subject and technical experts from agencies and other partners, served as the advisors in the development each of the data models. Individuals on the technical teams range from environmental organizations, private industry, federal, state, and municipal partners, private landowners, conservation organizations, and citizens groups. One technical team was formed for each of the eight core data models. The ignition probability layer was created as an input into the wildfire Risk model. The spatial layers are housed on the New Mexico Resource Geographic Information System Program (RGIS), a cooperative program between the University of New Mexico and the New Mexico Information Technology Commission and can be found at http://rgis.unm.edu/data_entry.cfm
