Description:
Abstract:
This layer displays point data for large fire incidents for the indicated year that have been entered into the National Interagency Fire Center (NIFC) 209 Situation Report database maintained in Kansas City, MO by the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service, and served as a text file named "extended-sit-info.txt". The Interagency Situation (SIT) Report Program captures incident activity and resource status information in summary form intended for use by managers. The information is submitted via an HTTP site, and then can be accessed and utilized at local Dispatch Offices, Geographic Area Coordination Centers(GACCs) and the National Interagency Coordination Center (NICC) to produce summary reports to be used by agency managers as a decision making tool. Agency information officers also use the reports to disseminate incident activity to the media and public. GACCs have edit access to all of the Dispatch Offices within their area. Additionally, NICC has edit access to all Dispatch Offices and GACCs. The SIT Report is prepared on a daily basis at National Preparedness Level 2 and above, or when significant activity occurs. Updated 03/08/2013, SPW.
Purpose:
The layer portrays situation report point data for large fires as entered into the NIFC database for the year indicated in the dataset attributes.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Incident Management Situation Report 209 data is retrieved daily by GeoMAC <www.geomac.gov/> from <https://fam.nwcg.gov/fam-web/kcfast/batchout/> in text file format on a daily basis. The file is then modified by adding additional attributes for GeoMAC purposes and used to create a dababase layer which is displayed in the GeoMAC viewer as "All Current Year Fires", as well as 2005 Fires through the previouis year Fires. The files are also available for download via the GeoMAC http site at <http://rmgsc.cr.usgs.gov/outgoing/GeoMAC/historic_fire_data/>
