The National Incident Feature Service (NIFS) is based on the  National Wildfire Coordinating Group (NWCG) data standard for Wildland Fire Event. The Wildland Fire Event data standard defines the minimum attributes necessary for collection, storage and dissemination of incident based data on wildland fires (wildfires and prescribed fires). The standard is not intended for long term data storage, rather a standard to assist in the creation of incident based data management tools, minimum standards for data exchange, and to assist users in meeting GIS Standard Operating Procedures on Incidents (GSTOP). The intent of this standard is to update existing data formats and provide a common set of attributes for use on wildland fires starting fire season 2016.
