This Department oversees the Advance Planning Division, which is responsible for the Humboldt County's Geographic Information System (GIS) that is utilized by other County Departments; many federal, state and local agencies; and the general public. This coverage can be used for basic applications such as viewing, querying, and map output production, or to provide a basemap to support graphical overlays and analyses of geospatial data.</abstract> <note displayLabel="Preferred citation" lang="eng">Humboldt County Planning and Building Department.

The wildfire hazard in the County has been analyzed using the methodology of the California Department of Forestry Report to the Governor's Office of Planning and Research (1973), modified to account for conditions not included in their procedure. This method takes into account climate, the fuel potential of the vegetation and topography. CDF's fire hazard methodology as applied to Humboldt County and the distribution of zones is shown on the Wildfire and Flood Hazard Map. This distribution generally reflects a moderate to high rating on the western portions of the County where the fuel potential is high but the climate is damp. The extreme ratings are generally in the drier eastern portions of the County or in very steep terrain. Policy application of the fire ratings is by referring to the map of Wildland Fire and Flood. The Planning Department determines which applications should be reviewed by the appropriate fire protection agency, and considers their response in the approval and requirements for development application. This method reduces the risk to structures and their occupants, as well as the threat to surrounding wildland vegetation. This risk which wildland occupants cause others is also reduced by the requirement of fire safety measures. The standards that are used as guidelines for development reviewed by the Planning Department to reduce the hazard of fire are the CDF "Fire Safe Guides" (CDF, 1980). Other County standards are listed in Title III, Division 2 Subdivision Regulations, and the newest edition of the Uniform Building Code. The Fire Safe Guides are applied with some discretion due to competing policy concerns such as adequate road width for emergency vehicles versus increased erosion from wider road widths.

It has not been fully reviewed for accuracy and is intended to be used for planning purposes only. The department assumes no liability or responsibility in the use of this data. While every effort has been made to assure the accuracy of this information, it should be understood that it does not have the force and effect of law, rule, or regulation. In the event of any difference or error, the law will take precedence. The accuracy of map data varies from location to location in the county. While the GIS is useful for planning purposes, it should not be relied upon to determine property, zoning or general plan designation boundaries or be used in any way for project design. All GIS data should be verified before it is materially relied upon for property or project planning. In urban areas the GIS map data maybe inaccurate by as much as 50 feet in any direction. In rural areas the map data may be inaccurate by as much as 400 feet in any direction.</note> <subject> <topic authority="lcsh" authorityURI="http://id.loc.gov/authorities/subjects" lang="eng">Administrative and political divisions</topic> </subject> <subject> <topic authority="lcsh" authorityURI="http://id.loc.gov/authorities/subjects" lang="eng">Government liability</topic> </subject> <subject> <topic authority="lcsh" authorityURI="http://id.loc.gov/authorities/subjects" lang="eng">Fires and fire prevention</topic> </subject> <subject> <topic authority="lcsh" authorityURI="http://id.loc.gov/authorities/subjects" lang="eng">Fire risk assessment</topic> </subject> <subject> <topic authority="lcsh" authorityURI="http://id.loc.gov/authorities/subjects" lang="eng">Environmental impact analysis</topic> </subject> <subject> <geographic lang="eng">Humboldt County (Calif.)</geographic> </subject> <subject> <temporal encoding="w3cdtf">2015</temporal> </subject> <subject> <topic authority="ISO19115TopicCategory" authorityURI="http://www.isotc211.org/2005/resources/Codelist/gmxCodelists.xml#MD_TopicCategoryCode" valueURI="boundaries">Boundaries</topic> </subject> <subject> <topic authority="ISO19115TopicCategory" authorityURI="http://www.isotc211.org/2005/resources/Codelist/gmxCodelists.xml#MD_TopicCategoryCode" valueURI="environment">Environment</topic> </subject> <location> <url>http://purl.stanford.edu/fz025mv9839</url> </location> <recordInfo> <recordContentSource>Stanford</recordContentSource> <recordIdentifier>edu.stanford.purl:fz025mv9839</recordIdentifier> <recordOrigin>This record was translated from ISO 19139 to MODS v.3 using an xsl transformation.</recordOrigin> <languageOfCataloging> <languageTerm authority="iso639-2b" type="code">eng</languageTerm> </languageOfCataloging> </recordInfo> <extension displayLabel="geo"> <rdf:RDF xmlns:gml="http://www.opengis.net/gml/3.2/" xmlns:dc="http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/"> <rdf:Description rdf:about="http://purl.stanford.edu/fz025mv9839"> <dc:format>application/x-esri-shapefile; format=Shapefile</dc:format> <dc:type>Dataset#Polygon</dc:type> <gml:boundedBy> <gml:Envelope gml:srsName="EPSG:4326"> <gml:lowerCorner>-124.40843 40.001436</gml:lowerCorner> <gml:upperCorner>-123.405219 41.466095</gml:upperCorner> </gml:Envelope> </gml:boundedBy> <dc:coverage rdf:resource="" dc:language="eng" dc:title="Humboldt County (Calif.)"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF> </extension> <subject authority="EPSG" valueURI="http://opengis.net/def/crs/EPSG/0/4326" displayLabel="WGS84"> <cartographics> <scale>Scale not given.</scale> <projection>EPSG::4326</projection> <coordinates>W 124°24ʹ30ʺ--W 123°24ʹ19ʺ/N 41°27ʹ58ʺ--N 40°5ʺ</coordinates> </cartographics> </subject> <note displayLabel="WGS84 Cartographics">This layer is presented in the WGS84 coordinate system for web display purposes.
