        • abstract: This dataset contains the number of days acres burned by wildland fires and the number of wildland fires >100 acres for each year (1992-2015) and each New Mexico county. These county-level estimates were created using the US Forest Service Spatial Wildfire Occurrence Data for the United States, 1992-2015 [FPA_FOD_20170508] (4th edition), compiled by Karen C. Short and housed in the Forest Service Research Data Archive. Data and full citation can be found at: https://doi.org/10.2737/RDS-2013-0009.4.
        • purpose: This dataset contains calculated measures for wildfire activity for use on the NM public portal. The dataset is intended to describe cumulative wildfire activity in New Mexico by region. This does not provide information on how many days per year people may be exposed to unhealthy levels of wildfire smoke. These data are not intended for performing health assessments or otherwise being directly related or linked to health data.
        • methods: These county-level estimates of wildfire activity were created using the US Forest Service Spatial Wildfire Occurrence Data for the United States, 1992-2015, which provides centroid locations for fires reported by federal, state, and local fire organizations. Fires were aggregated by county based on which county those centroids occupied. As such, fires that spanned multiple counties were assigned exclusively to the county where the centroid fell (which should correspond to the county where the most burned acres occurred).

          • procdesc: NM EPHT data queries through nmtracking.org (NMTracking) result in query-specific data sets that are aggregated by geographic unit. These aggregated data are dynamically joined to boundary data sets for display in the NMTracking interactive map. Boundaries are for County and 2010 U.S. Census Tract. Mapped results for the interactive data query include options for a background with an NM base map or shaded relief. The background map is served from OpenStreetMap contributors (http://www.openstreetmap.org/copyright).
