Abstract:
The New Jersey Forest Fire Service (NJFFS), a division of the New Jersey Departmental of Environmental Protection (NJDEP), has developed this Wildfire Fuel Hazard data based upon NJDEP's 2002 Land Use/Land Cover (LU/LC) datasets and NJDEP's 2002 10-meter Digital Elevation Grid datasets.
The NJFFS took the NJDEP Modified Anderson Land Use/Land Cover Classification System 2002 and assigned Wildfire Fuel Hazard Rankings to it. The ranking system is as follows: 0 = Water, 1 = Low, 2 = Moderate, 3 = High, 4 = Very High, 5 = Extreme, 6 = Urban, 7 = Agriculture, 8 = Barren Land.
The NJFFS used NJDEP's 2002 10-meter Digital Elevation Grids and calculated areas of 30% or greater slope throughout New Jersey. For areas of Wildfire Fuel Hazard 1 to 4 (i.e. Low to Very High) that were coincident with areas of 30% or greater slope, the Wildfire Fuel Hazard Ranking was increased by 1 value (i.e. Low was increased to Moderate, Moderate to High, etc.). For areas of Wildfire Fuel Hazard 0, and 5-8, the Wildfire Fuel Hazard Ranking remained the same.
Once the LU/LC was coded according to Wildfire Fuel Hazard, taking into account 30% or greater slopes, the data was divided up by County. The project began in March 2009 and was completed in May 2009.
Purpose:
To provide information for NJ Forest Fire Service personnel, government agencies, and others interested in assessing Wildfire Fuel Hazard throughout New Jersey.

The 2002 LU/LC was created by comparing the 1995/97 LU/LC layer from NJ DEP's geographical information systems (GIS) database to 2002 color infrared (CIR) imagery and delineating areas of change. Work for this data set was done by Aerial Information Systems, Inc., Redlands, CA, under direction of the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP), Bureau of Geographic Information System (BGIS). LU/LC changes were captured by adding new line work and attribute data for the 2002 land use directly to the base data layer. All 1986 LU/LC polygons and attribute fields were removed from this update, however, all 1995/97 LU/LC polygons remain in this data set, so change analysis can be undertaken from this one layer. The classification system used was a modified Anderson et al., 2002 classification system. An impervious surface (IS) code was also assigned to each LU/LC polygon based on the percentage of impervious surface within each polygon as of 2002 and 1995/97. Minimum mapping unit (MMU) is 1 acre.

A lattice is the ESRI GRID raster file generated from USGS DEM files. Digital Elevation Model (DEM) is the terminology adopted by the USGS to describe terrain elevation data sets in a digital raster form. The standard DEM consists of a regular array of elevations cast on a designated coordinate projection system. The DEM data are stored as a series of profiles in which the spacing of the elevations along and between each profile is in regular whole number intervals. The normal orientation of data is by columns and rows. Each column contains a series of elevations ordered from south to north with the order of the columns from west to east.
The DEM supplied from USGS is formatted as one ASCII header record (A- record), followed by a series of profile records (B- records) each of which include a short B-record header followed by a series of ASCII integer elevations per each profile. The last physical record of the DEM is an accuracy record (C-record).
7.5-minute DEM (10-meter x 10-meter data spacing, cast on Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) projection) were merged and clipped to the watershed boundary for this data set.
A lattice can be used as source data to create other layers which require elevation information. Examples of layers which can be derived from a lattice include aspect, contour, hillshade, slope, flow accumulation and flow direction. It can also serve as source data for applications such as volumetric analysis, for site location of towers, or for drainage basin delineation. The DEM data was purchased by the NJ Division of Watershed Management from the USGS in 2001.

Process_Description:
NJDEP's 2002 Land Use/Land Cover datasets were downloaded from the NJDEP website by WMA. A "FUELHAZD" attribute field was added to each shapefile and the applicable Wildfire Fuel Hazard Ranking (0 = Water, 1 = Low, 2 = Moderate, 3 = High, 4 = Very High, 5 = Extreme, 6 = Urban, 7 = Agriculture, 8 = Barren Land) was calculated into the FUELHAZD field for each land use/land cover polygon.
The following details each land use/land cover code (taken from the NJDEP Modified Anderson Land Use/Land Cover Classification System 2002) and its associated Wildfire Fuel Hazard Ranking:
Urban Lands: 1000 Series 1100 Residential = N/A 1110 Residential (High Density or Multiple Dwelling) = 6 1120 Residential (Single Unit, Medium Density) = 6 1130 Residential (Single Unit, Low Density) = 6 1140 Residential (Rural, Single Unit) = 2 1150 Mixed Residential = 6 1200 Commercial and Services = 6 1211 Military Installations = 6 1214 Former Military; Indeterminate Use = 6 1300 Industrial = 6 1400 Transportation/Communication/Utilities = 2 1410 Major Roadway = 6 1419 Bridge Over Water = 6 1440 Airport Facilities = 6 1461 Wetland Rights-of-Way = 1 1462 Upland Rights-of-Way, Developed = 6 1463 Upland Rights-of-Way, Undeveloped = 2 1499 Stormwater Basin = 6 1500 Industrial and Commercial Complexes = 6 1600 Mixed Urban or Built-up Land = 6 1700 Other Urban or Built-up Land = 6 1710 Cemetery = 1 1711 Cemetery on Wetland = 1 1741 Phragmites Dominate Urban Area = 4 1750 Managed Wetland, in Maintained Lawn Green space = 1 1800 Recreational Land = 1 1804 Athletic Fields (Schools) = 1 1810 Stadium, Theaters, Cultural Centers, and Zoos = 1 1850 Managed Wetland, in Built-up Maintained Rec Area = 1 Agriculture: 2000 Series 2100 Cropland and Pastureland = 7 2140 Agricultural Wetlands (Cranberry Farms & Modified Uplands) = 1 2150 Former Agricultural Wetlands (Becoming Shrubby not Built-up) = 1 2200 Orchards, Vineyards, Nurseries, Horticultural Areas, Sod Farms = 7 2300 Confined Feeding Operations = 7 2400 Other Agriculture = 7 Forest: 4000 Series 4100 Deciduous Forest = N/A 4110 Deciduous Forest (10-50% Crown Closure) = 2 4120 Deciduous Forest (>50% Crown Closure) = 1 4200 Coniferous Forest = N/A 4210 Coniferous Forest (10-50% Crown Closure) = 5 4220 Coniferous Forest (>50% Crown Closure) = 5 4230 Plantation = 4 4300 Mixed Forest = N/A 4311 Mixed Forest (>50% Coniferous with 10-50% Crown Closure) = 4 4312 Mixed Forest (>50% Coniferous with >50% Crown Closure) = 5 4321 Mixed Forest (>50% Deciduous with 10-50% Crown Closure) = 3 4322 Mixed Forest (>50% Deciduous with >50% Crown Closure) = 2 4400 Brushland/Shrubland = N/A 4410 Old Field (< 25% Brush Covered) = 3 4411 Phragmites Dominate Old Field = 3 4420 Deciduous Brush/Shrubland = 3 4430 Coniferous Brush/Shrubland = 5 4440 Mixed Deciduous/Coniferous Brush/Shrubland = 4 4500 Severe Burned Upland Vegetation = According to Surrounding LU/LC Water: 5000 Series 5100 Streams and Canals = 0 5200 Natural Lakes = 0 5300 Artificial Lakes = 0 5400 Bays, Estuaries & other Tidal Waters = 0 5410 Tidal Rivers, Inland Bays and other Tidal Waters = 0 5411 Open Tidal Bays = 0 5420 Dredged Lagoon = 0 5430 Atlantic Ocean = 0 Wetlands: 6000 Series 6100 Coastal Wetlands = N/A 6110 Saline Marshes = 1 6111 Saline Marshes (Low marsh vegetation) = 2 6112 Saline Marshes (High marsh vegetation) = 3 6120 Freshwater Tidal Marshes = 3 6130 Vegetated Dune Communities = 3 6141 Phragmites Dominate Coastal Wetlands = 4 6200 Interior Wetlands = N/A 6210 Deciduous Wooded Wetlands = 1 6220 Coniferous Wooded Wetlands = 3 6221 Atlantic White Cedar Wetlands = 3 6230 Brush-Dominate and Bog Wetlands = 2 6231 Deciduous Scrub/Shrub Wetlands = 2 6232 Coniferous Scrub/Shrub Wetlands = 3 6233 Mixed Scrub/Shrub Wetlands (Deciduous Dom.) = 1 6234 Mixed Scrub/Shrub Wetlands (Coniferous Dom.) = 3 6240 Herbaceous Wetlands (Non-Tidal) = 2 6241 Phragmites Dominate Interior Wetlands = 3 6250 Mixed Wooded Wetlands = 1 6251 Mixed Forested Wetlands (Deciduous Dom.) = 1 6252 Mixed Forested Wetlands (Coniferous Dom.) = 3 6500 Severe Burned Wetlands = 4 Barren Lands: 7000 Series 7100 Beaches = 8 7200 Bare Exposed Rock, Rockslides, etc. = 8 7300 Extractive Mining = 8 7400 Altered Lands = 8 7430 Disturbed Wetlands (Modified) = 8 7500 Transitional Areas (sites under construction) = 8 7600 Undifferentiated Barren Lands = 8 Managed Wetlands: 8000 Series 8000 Managed Wetlands (Modified) = N/A
Please note that code 4500 was given a Wildfire Fuel Hazard value according to what type of LU/LC surrounded it most.
Process_Date: 20090322
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
NJDEP's 2002 10-meter Digital Elevation Grid datasets were downloaded from the NJDEP website by WMA. A model was setup to run 3 processes for each WMA using tools from Spatial Analyst. First, slope was calculated and a new raster dataset produced. Second, the slope dataset was reclassified into 2 values: 0 = slopes less than 30% and 1 = slopes equal to or greater than 30%. Third, this reclassified raster dataset was converted to features (i.e. polygons) in the form of a shapefile.
Process_Date: 20090402
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
A Union was performed on the LU/LC shapefile coded with Wildfire Fuel Hazard Rankings and the Slope shapefile coded with areas of slope less than 30% and equal to or greater than 30%.
Process_Date: 20090407
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Since the slope shapefile contained extra "overlap" surrounding the WMA from the original raster DEGs, these null polygons (i.e. polygons without any LU/LC data) were removed from the Unioned dataset to produce a clean shapefile whereby every polygon has a LU/LC code, Wildfire Fuel Hazard Ranking, and slope value.
Process_Date: 20090407
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Added attribute field "SLOPE30P" and calculated the "GRID" values representing slope (0 and 1) to the SLOPE30P field whereby, 0 = "N" and 1 = "Y".
Process_Date: 20090407
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
A select by attributes was performed to select all polygons where SLOPE30P = Y and FUELHAZD = 1, 2, 3, or 4. The FUELHAZD for these selected polygons was increased by 1.
Process_Date: 20090407
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
A Dissolve was performed so that only the following attributes remained: FUELHAZD, SLOPE30P, and WMA.
Process_Date: 20090407
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The dissolved shapefile was then "exploded" so that no multi-part features remained.
Process_Date: 20090407
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The following attribute fields were added to the shapefile: FIREDESC, ACRES, and COUNTY.
Process_Date: 20090407
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The attribute field FIREDESC was populated with the corresponding FUELHAZD text description (i.e. 0 = WATER, 1 = LOW, 2 = MODERATE, 3 = HIGH, 4 = VERY HIGH, 5 = EXTREME, 6 = URBAN, 7 = AGRICULTURE, 8 = BARREN LAND).
Process_Date: 20090407
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The Wildfire Fuel Hazard shapefiles by WMA were merged into larger areas and clipped to each of the County areas in NJ to produce 21 County Wildfire Fuel Hazard shapefiles.
Process_Date: 20090407
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Once in County format, each Wildfire Fuel Hazard shapefile's attributes were finalized. ACRES was populated using "Calculate Geometry" in ArcGIS 9.2 and COUNTY was populated with the applicable county name.
