Title: Owens Valley Fires
Description:
Abstract:
Boundaries of recent fires in the Owens Valley were digitized.
Purpose:
The creation of a digital version of fire boundary maps allows these data to be analyzed in relation to other data in a GIS. This will facilitate improved groundwater management in the Owens Valley.
