The objective of this project was to use fire occurrence and perimeter data to evaluate the relative probability of wildfire ignition and occurrence of large fires across Santa Barbara county, California, under historical and projected future conditions. The resulting probability layers are intended to support a Regional Priority Plan to reduce wildfire risk and improve forest and habitat health.
