Using Fire Regimes as Ecosystem Indicators: SE FireMap, Southeast Conservation Blueprint, and Other Applications
Welcome to Using Fire Regimes as Ecosystem Indicators: SE FireMap, Southeast Conservation Blueprint, and other applications. This course examines the challenges and opportunities with using fire regimes as ecosystem indicators, including a discussion on how Tall Timbers Research Station has been using SE FireMap data in their conservation planning and how the 2021 South Atlantic Conservation Blueprint is using the SE FireMap data.
Using Fire Regimes as Ecosystem Indicators is hosted by Hilary Morris, User Support & Communications, South Atlantic & Southeast Blueprints.

This course provides some background on the new fire regime data from the SE FireMap project, followed by a discussion on how Tall Timbers Research Station has been using SE FireMap data in their conservation planning and how the 2021 South Atlantic Conservation Blueprint is using the SE FireMap data.
The SE FireMap is a new fire mapping system for the Southeastern United States. Developed with funding provided by the USDA NRCS, SE FireMap uses a remote sensing based approach to track both prescribed fire and wildfire activity on public and private lands across the range of the longleaf pine. SE FireMap is being developed as a critical decision support tool to maximize the effectiveness of fire management practices across boundaries, ecosystems, and jurisdictions.
