This web application was created by LandVest Inc. to illustrate the various modeled factors which help to define wildfire risk as they pertain to timberland assets on the Pacific Coast. All values/variables are spatially averaged by county.
It was built using publically available GIS datasets from U.S. Forest Service Research.

The datasets presented here are the product of modeling, and as such carry an inherent
degree of error and uncertainty. Users are strongly encouraged to read and fully comprehend the metadata and other
available documentation prior to data use. No warranty is made by the Originator as to the accuracy, reliability, or
completeness of these data for individual use or aggregate use with other data, or for purposes not intended by the
Originator. These datasets are intended to provide nationally-consistent information for the purpose of comparing
relative wildfire risk among communities nationally or within a state or county. Data included here are not intended
to replace locally-calibrated state, regional, or local risk assessments where they exist. It is the responsibility
of the user to be familiar with the value, assumptions, and limitations of these national data publications.
Managers and planners must evaluate these data according to the scale and requirements specific to their needs.
