You can access featured datasets, including aerial fire retardant avoidance areas, boundaries, fire-related maps and data, forest health information, historical wilderness and wild and scenic river designation information, and data related to the Puerto Rico Gap Analysis Project.
There are 26 datasets, ranging from administrative forest boundaries to surface ownership parcels and proclaimed national forests and grasslands. Data is updated weekly from the FS Land Status Records System.
Aerial Fire Retardant Avoidance data is now available in a single location, with data on terrestrial and hydrographic areas where the use of aerial fire retardant is to be avoided.
Aerial retardant avoidance areas for hydrographic feature data (based on high resolution National Hydrographic Dataset (NHD) produced by USGS) is available for each FS Region, as well as a national Aerial Fire Retardant Avoidance - Terrestrial layer.
