Description
This raster dataset depicts fire threats as a combination of two factors for the nine county San Francisco Bay Area Region, California: 1) the likelihood of a given area burning (frequency), and 2) potential fire behavior (hazard). These two factors are combined to create four threat classes ranging from moderate to extreme. The source data was compiled by the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. This dataset was developed/compiled for use in the San Francisco Bay Area Upland Habitat Goals Project, a Project used to identify a Conservation Lands Network (CLN) for biodiversity preservation to inform conservation investments and lasting cooperative conservation partnerships. The Conservation Lands Network GIS Database is the primary output of the Project. The data depicts the spatially explicit CLN that is recommended for the nine county San Francisco Bay Area Region, California.
