Overview

The Class I Airshed boundary layer contains the National Park Service (NPS), US Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS), and USDA Forest Service (FS) Class I Airshed boundaries. The Class I boundary set is used to create receptor files for modeling purposes.

Data Input

Individual shapefiles for each of three federal agencies were downloaded from the National Park Service's Air Resource Division website. These files were then merged together to create a comprehensive interagency Class I airshed boundary layer. The following agencies have Class I boundary files and were used in the creation of the national interagency layer:

WFDSS GIS Team

The WFDSS application is "data rich". It requires data which is spatially oriented and graphically displays information to support wildland fire and other natural resource decisions. Due to the type and number of interagency spatial data sets required in April 2009 an interagency GIS Team was formed to provide data support for WFDSS. This Team is responsible for acquiring, consolidating, and validating their agency spatial and tabular data. In addition this team developed and maintained communications among local, regional, and national agency personnel to improve the collection process and provide explicit guidance on data needs. The members of the WFDSS GIS Team are:
