Download National Datasets

Data collected and managed by Forest Service programs is available in a map service and two downloadable file formats – in a shape file and an ESRI file geodatabase. Metadata is available that describes the content, source, and currency of the data. You can filter the list by the topic categories in the menu at the left to help you find information you are interested in. You can view the feature classes in a single dataset by clicking on the name of the parent dataset at the bottom of the abstract.

Requests for KML/KMZ output
The Enterprise Data Warehouse Team tested exporting out to KML/KMZ files as a deliverable and due to the complexity and size of the datasets this has been unsuccessful. To obtain a KML file for any EDW dataset, go to the Geospatial Data Discovery Tool and search for the dataset. An option to download to KML is available from that website. If you have questions, contact: SM.FS.data@usda.gov.

Feature Classes Abstract

Stewardship Contracting: Line

ESRI geodatabase  (170KB)
shape file  (123KB)

Themes: western bark beetle strategy, recovery, activities, resiliency, safety

StwrdCntrctng_LN (Stewardship Contracting: Line) depicts the linear activities within Stewardship Contracting Project Boundary. Activities are implemented through stewardship contracts or agreements and are self-reported by Forest Service Units through the FACTS (Forest Service Activity Tracking System) database. This feature class is derived from Activity linear features and FACTS Activities tabular data located in the EDW.

WBBS_LN depicts the area of activities to implement the Western Bark Beetle Strategy. Activities were self-reported by field units, and center around three main objectives: increasing safety to ensure that people and community infrastructure are protected from the hazards of falling bark beetle-killed trees and elevated wildfire potential, facilitating recovery to re-establish forests damaged by bark beetles, and cultivating resiliency to prevent or mitigate future bark beetle impacts. WBBS ended in FY16 and was not renewed, so it is no longer a requirement to track WBBS accomplishments. It became an optional entry to the National Resource Management (NRM) database beginning in FY2017.

Purpose:
This data represents activities entered through FACTS (Forest Service Activity Tracking System) to implement the Western Bark Beetle Strategy. It is important to note that this data layer does not contain all of the activities under taken by fiscal year because the data is self-reported and may not be complete. As spatial data is a new requirement for the program, we hope to improve the quality and comprehensiveness of this data in coming years. Activities were self-reported by field units, and center around three main objectives: increasing safety to ensure that people and community infrastructure are protected from the hazards of falling bark beetle-killed trees and elevated wildfire potential, facilitating recovery to re-establish forests damaged by bark beetles, and cultivating resiliency to prevent or mitigate future bark beetle impacts.
