2014-15 IDFG Access Yes! Properties
Idaho Department of Fish and Game

Acess Yes! is a program designed to improve sportsmen's access to private land or through private land to public land by compensating willing landowners who provide access. Ultimately, the goal is to provide access to 1,000,000+ acres of private land along with access through private land to thousands more acres of public land.

Average Date When Lilacs Bloom in Idaho
Idaho Geospatial Data Clearinghouse

This GIS digital data set portrays the average date when lilacs start bloom in Idaho. Information on dates when plants and animals reach various stages in their development is referred to as phenological data. The purple common lilac (Syringa vulgaris L.) was chosen as the indicator of plant development in western regional phenological studies because it is well adapted and widely distributed throughout the Western United States. Approximately 160 observers scattered throughout Idaho observed the dates of lilac bloom for the 10 years of data used as a base for this study (from 1957 to 1966). Without the unselfish dedication of these volunteers this study would not have been possible.

Fire Behavior - Expected Fuel Moisture
U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI), Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Idaho State Office

Aspect was used as a surrogate to characterize areas that are relatively drier, therefor have lower live/dead fuel moistures. If the effects of vegetation are ignored, it was assumed that fuel moisture varies according to aspect. That is, with all else being equal, fuels are typically drier on southwesterly aspects, and moister on northeasterly aspects. Relative fuel moisture was assigned to 3 aspect classes : Azimuth (degrees) Relative Solar Radiation Relative Fuel Moisture 1 to 80; 351 to 360 low high Flat; 81 to 170; 261 to 350 moderate moderate 171 to 260 high low Excluding the effects of real-time weather, fire behavior is dependent upon the structure, composition, and arrangement of fuels; fuel moisture, and slope.

Fire Behavior - Fuel Hazard
U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI), Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Idaho State Office

At best, predicting surface and canopy fuel loads from mid-scale data is problematic at best. The structure, composition, and arrangement of fuels are dependent upon the disturbance history of any given stand. Disturbance history includes natural processes (e.g., fire, wind, insects, and pathogens), as well as anthropogenic processes (e.g., silvicultural treatments and grazing practices). The only available proxy to the disturbance history (and consequently fuel loadings) available at a mid-scale level is the current structure and composition of vegetation (e.g., cover type, canopy cover, and size class). Unfortunately, the current structure and composition of vegetation is a very poor predictor of stand history. For example, stands having the same cover type, canopy cover, and size class may have substantially different histories; one could have been logged and the fuels cleaned up, and the other could have been impacted by mountain pine beetles. Since the structure and composition of the current vegetation is a poor predictor of fuel loadings, we had Forest Service and BLM fuels specialist assign a very coarse qualitative ranking of "fuel hazard" (e.g., containment problems) to unique combinations of PVT and FBFM. The specific rule sets can be found in Table 24 of the "Idaho Interagency Assessment or Wildland Fire Risks to Communities: a Description of Methods". The specialists considered the following fire behavior attributes when making these assignments: ROS, fireline intensity, the potential for active crown fires, and the potential for spotting.

Fire Behavior - Fuel Model
U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI), Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Idaho State Office

Anderson's (1982) fire-behavior fuel models were assigned to unique combinations of PVT, cover type, size class, and canopy density based upon field experience of U.S. Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management ecologists.

Fire Behavior - Ignition Probability
U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI), Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Idaho State Office

An ignition probability layer (fire density) was derived using an interpolation process (ArcInfo; pointinterp) of the fire start data. 2-km cells were used for the interpolation process because fire locations were commonly only reported to the nearest Public Land Survey Section (PLSS), approximately 1 square mile. Interpolation resulted in 2-km cells being attributed with the count of ignitions. Ignition probability was derived by classifying the density data into 5 classes (low to high) using the "natural break" algorithm included in ArcMap. The values represent relative values that have been standardized between 0.0 and 1.0

Fire Behavior - Slope Effect
U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI), Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Idaho State Office

Slope steepness was used to reflect effects on relative fire behavior. It was assumed the steeper the slope, the higher the fire intensity, assuming other variables remain constant (weather; wind; structure, composition, and arrangement of fuels; fuel moisture, etc.). BehavePlus was used to model the relationship of fire intensity and slope. Slope Class Percent Slope Fire Intensity Rating 1 0-10% Low 2 10-30% Low 3 30-60% Moderate 4 >60% High

Fire Restriction Areas
U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI), Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Idaho State Office

The Fire Restriction Areas represents a geographic location with similar timing for weather changes and resulting fire behavior potentials. Boundaries for each area generally follow county boundaries with some being placed along roadways, rivers, hydrologic divides or other known points that can be clearly described to the public and agency personnel. When a majority of land managers and agency administrators representing the jurisdictions within an area agree that the conditions warrant a restriction, the entire area will be placed in a restricted status. When land managers and agency administrators agree that the restrictions for that area can be removed, the entire area will rescind restrictions as a whole.

Greater Sage Grouse Conservation Areas
Idaho Department of Fish and Game

This data set contains landscape-scale greater sage-management zones as defined by the Idaho Sage Grouse Task Force. The intended scale of use is 1:500,000. The data was developed through a collaborative process in looking at several GIS datasets. The dataset was digitzed coarsely on the screen to roughly match the extent of the BLM PPH and PGH line work. In August 2012, the names of the Southwest and Southeast Conservation Areas where changed to West Owyhee and Southern, respectively. Also, the boundary between these two areas was also changed to the Bruneau River. fields: Management Zones are within field [IDcat_rev1] = Core, Important, General, or Nonhabitat (areas that are islands of nonhabitat)Conservation Areas are within field [CoreZones] = Mountain Valleys, Desert, Southern, or West Owyhee.[NorthSouth] = South of the Snake River or North of the Snake River

Idaho Birding Trail - Routes
Idaho Department of Fish and Game

The Idaho Birding Trail (IBT) is a network of sites and side-trips that provides the best viewing opportunities to see birds in Idaho. With 175 sites and about 2,000 miles of trail, the birding trail represents a collection of bird watching hotspots, diverse habitats, and a glimpse of Idaho's rich natural heritage. Twenty-two sites are designated as Blue Ribbon sites. These are "the best of the best" bird viewing opportunities in Idaho. A state House resolution in 2006 recognizes the Idaho Birding Trail as the official state birding trail.
