Summary

BEACONs compiled point and polygon fire datasets from Canada and Alaska for the NWB LCC planning region. Fire point data details the ignition point of all fires as well as attributes describing fire area, fire cause, and fire year. Fire polygon databases provide mapped fire perimeters. These datasets include all point and polygon fires in the data sources described below. The point data spans the period 1939-2014, and the polygon data covers 1921-2014.Canada • Canadian National Fire Database o http://cwfis.cfs.nrcan.gc.ca/datamart The Canadian National Fire Database (NFDB) is a national dataset compiled from provincial and Parks Canada datasets.
