Date Type Publication
Cited Responsible Party
Organization Name The Nature Conservancy in New Mexico
Role identify
Presentation Form raster digital data
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
