FGDC Cadastral Subcommittee - Projects and Workgroups

Wildland Fire Work Group
The FGDC Cadastral Subcommittee involvement with the wildland fire community began in 2005 with a workshop in Denver that brought wildland fire managers and the cadastral community together to discuss the benefits of working together. This multi-disciplinary group had a wide range of experiences and expertise with the business operations of wildland fire planning, response, and recovery as well as knowledge of cadastral information and its potential uses in emergencies.

Charter
The Wildland Working Group is focused on describing the attributes, domains of values, features, and representation parcel data, structure locations related to parcel data, and other cadastral information that can be applied to all phases of wildland fire management.
