This tool extracts the selected layers in the specified area of interest to the selected formats and spatial reference, then returns all the data in a zip file.  To use the tool, click on either the "Polygon" button or the "Freehand" button in step 1.  Draw the area of interest on the map, then select the features in steps 2, 3 and 4. Then click on the Extract Data button.

You can navigate around the map using the mouse.  Double click to zoom in, use the wheel to zoom in and out, and clip and drag to pan about. You can also click on the Plus and Minus images in the upper left corner.

 Data Descriptions

 
 

 

 

Lookouts:

Summary
The lookouts layer may be used to display lookout locations, perform visibility analysis on a Digital Elevation Model (DEM), and measure observed smoke distance.
 
Description
Point location of active fire lookouts utilized by fire agencies in Oregon. The points are attributed with the name of the lookout, the managing agency, the height of the tower, and the elevation at the base of the tower. Retired lookouts are in separate data set [lookouts_historic].

 

ODF Fires:

Summary
Known point locations for ODF statistical fires starting in 1960. Fire point locations were derived from ODF's FIRES database.  Many records prior to 2003 provide only the legal location.

 

Description
A statistical fire is a fire requiring suppression action by ODF or its cooperators if it meets one of the following three conditions:  1. Originates on land for which the district has protection responsibility and is contained within the district. Includes dual assessment fires, except where only the structure was involved. 2. Originates on land protected by another agency and/or district, and spreads into the reporting district. 3. Originates on land outside of district protected forest land and does not spread to protected forest land, but is within 1/8 of a mile of forest land (280 yards), or deemed a threat by ODF fire managers to forest land; and the fire is not within the boundaries of another protection agency; or the fire is within another protection agency boundary, however, suppression is clearly needed to prevent the spread of fire to protected forest land.

 

Streams - Fish Presence:

Description
Lines delineating rivers and streams, including Fish Presence data for the state of Oregon. Forest practice rules require tree retention along streambanks where fish and domestic water supplies are involved. Operators must protect soils, fish and wildlife habitat, and water quality. Protecting these streamsides promotes mature forest conditions, helps maintain fish habitat and prevents sediment from entering the stream.

High Aquatic Potential Streams:

Description
HAP stream reaches are intended to help ODF Stewardship Foresters, forest landowners and other users to identify stream reaches in which recruitment of large woody debris is most likely to be effective at enhancing habitat for salmonids.
 
Rangeland Protection Associations:
 
Summary
Cartographic display of Oregon Rangeland Protection Associations, and retrieval of jurisdiction for a given point.
 
Description
Polygons delineating Rangeland Protection Associations within Oregon.
 
Fire Weather Zones:
 
Description
Fire Weather Zones for the State of Oregon, used by Oregon Department of Forestry. The weather zone boundaries were created by combining and extending lines from other themes that define geographic and cultural boundaries (see field values descriptions). A digital coverage of weather zones created by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric(NOAA) was used as a guide to place the boundaries.
 
Smoke Sensitive Areas:
 
Summary
Prevent smoke resulting from prescribed burning on forestlands from being carried to or accumulating in smoke sensitive receptor areas or other areas sensitive to smoke, and to provide maximum opportunity for essential forestland burning while minimizing emissions.
 
Description
Polygons delineating “Smoke sensitive receptor area or SSRA,” an area designated for the highest level of protection under the smoke management plan, as described and listed in OAR 629-048-0140. When prescribed burning is conducted in proximity to, but outside communities or areas designated as smoke sensitive receptor areas, the objective of the smoke management plan is no smoke intrusions into the SSRA. (2) When prescribed burning is conducted inside a smoke sensitive receptor area, the smoke management plan objective is to use best burn practices and prompt mop-up, as appropriate, along with tight parameters for burn site conditions that are intended to vent the main smoke plume up and out of the SSRA and minimize residual smoke.
 
Structural Fire Protection Districts:
 
Description
Polygons representing urban and rural structural fire district boundaries within Oregon. The layer was created cooperatively with the Oregon State Fire Marshal's office.
 
ODF Forest Protection Districts:
 
Description
Polygons delineating Oregon Department of Forestry's Protection from Fire Program Districts. The ODF Protection Districts are boundaries described in statute. Private and some federal lands within the boundaries are protected from fire by ODF. Most of the boundaries have been adjusted to the legal descriptions for the Protection District boundaries compiled by the Protection From Fire Program. The most recent update broke the Cascade District into North and South Cascade Districts.
