Theme keywords: environment, Fire, Fire History, Fire Protection, CDF

Abstract: Area, cause and date of fires in Napa County as recorded by the Fire and Resource Assessment Program (FRAP) of California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. Fire Perimeter data consists of CDF fires 300 acres and greater in size and USFS fires 10 acres and greater from 1950 to 2003. Some fires before 1950, and some CDF fires smaller than 300 acres are also included. BLM fires are complete since 2002 for fires greater than 10 acres in size. Integration of historical BLM fires is incomplete and work is ongoing . In 2002 criteria expanded for new CDF fires to include timber fires greater than 10 acres, brush fires greater than 50 acres, grass fires greater than 300 acres, wild land fires destroying three or more structures, and wild land fires causing $300,000 or more in damage.

FGDC and ESRI Metadata:

Metadata elements shown with blue text are defined in the Federal Geographic Data Committee's (FGDC) Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM). Elements shown with green text are defined in the ESRI Profile of the CSDGM. Elements shown with a green asterisk (*) will be automatically updated by ArcCatalog. ArcCatalog adds hints indicating which FGDC elements are mandatory; these are shown with gray text.
