Commonly Requested GIS Data Sets
Fire Protection Districts thumbnail
Protection Districts
The ODF protection districts are the GIS representation of 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.  The boundary is a proposed boundary and may be subject to change when finally adopted.

Fire Weather Zone thumbnail
Fire Weather Zone
The fire weather zones are used by ODF for fire weather forecasting.   The weather zone boundaries were created by combining and extending lines from other themes that define geographic and cultural boundaries (see the linesource 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.

State Forest Ownership thumbnail
State Forests Ownership
State Forest Lands ownership by district. The ownership layer is based on the PLSS layer. 

Public Ownership thumbnail
Public Ownership
The public ownership layer shows land ownership/management for public entities, Federal, Tribal, State, and Local.  The base linework was derived mostly from the BLM Landlines (Public Land Survey & Jurisdiction) layer and from ODF ownership layer.  This base linework was enhanced using lines derived from the Government Corners Database (GCDB).

Rangeland Fire Protection Association thumbnail
Rangeland Fire Protection Association
Rangeland Fire Protection Association boundary lines were created using some existing lines at scale 100k and some lines from the GCDB.

Fire protection districts organized by local jurisdiction

Tillamook Burn Seeding History thumbnail
Tillamook Burn Seeding History
 A digitized version of the Seeding History Maps of the Tillamook Burn.  The map books were created and maintained by George Martin and Larry Fick of the Forest Grove District.

Seed Zone thumbnail
Seed Zones
The seed zones areas within the state that contain genetically similar trees within a species.  The zones area designed to give guidance for determining appropriate tree seedling parental source area.  The zones were revised in 1996.  No species have been completed east of the cascades.  Lodgepole pine and black cottonwood are incomplete, and ponderosa pine needs work. 

Historic Fires thumbnail
Historic Fires
Point locations for ODF statistical fires from 1960 to 2011.  The point locations for the fires were derived from ODF's FIRES database.  The location was derived from the legal location for those fires that had a valid legal location entered in the fires database.  Most of the locations for fires prior to 2003 were derived by using the legal location taken from the FIRES data fields.    These are the more recent fires.  This GeoDataBase is updated annually.

Wildland-Urban Interface data
CWPP Wildland-Urban Interface
Polygons delineating Community Wildlfire Protection Plan Wildland-Urban Interface boundaries within Oregon. The Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) is an area within or adjacent to an at-risk community identified in a Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP).  Some Community Wildfire Protection Plans delineate WUI boundaries (CWPP WUI). The Wildland-Urban Interface is the area where structures or human improvement meet or intermingle with wildland vegetation, which includes timber, grassland and brush fields. Communities with wildland fire risk (and their boundaries) are identified by the state through the risk assessment process or during development of Community Wildfire Protection Plans.
This is in the GeoDataBase format.

Current Lookout Data
Current Lookouts
The lookout layer is a 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.

Smoke Sensitive Areas Data
Smoke Sensitive Areas 
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.
