Fire History and Related Factors

This portal houses maps to orient you to Santa Barbara County's fire history and related factors. It can be used as a stepping stone to explore key datasets on this theme within the county. Under the "Explore related items..." section you'll find maps on Santa Barbara County's:

  • Fire History Time Series
  • Vegetation Risk
  • Building Footprints
  • Administrative Boundaries

If you have data layers to share please reach out and let us know so we can add them to the data sets here. If you’d like to provide interpretative information, please let us know as well. If you are interested in collaboration please or to share a project idea fill out this form.

Each of these maps has a variety of data layers you can interact with. When you open these maps please pay close attention to the data layers that you can click on in the left tab. Keep in mind that each of these maps has a small subset of data layers that are available for fire resources. The full list of data layers for this theme can be found within the Fire in Santa Barbara Gallery, which we welcome you to explore. We will continue to add layers to this gallery as we receive them.

This portal has been developed in partnership with the Cachuma Resource Conservation District. CRCD’s Regional Priority Plan (RPP) project is funded through the California Coastal Conservancy with the goal of fostering partnerships and projects to reduce wildfire risk and improve forest health in Santa Barbara County. For more information about the RPP and/or to engage, please contact Christina McGinnis (mcginnisenv@gmail.com) of the RPP team. For more information about this project please see this document.
