Wildland-Urban Interface Definition and Map Description
The Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) is the area where houses meet or intermingle with undeveloped wildland vegetation. This makes the WUI a focal area for human-environment conflicts such as wildland fires, habitat fragmentation, invasive species, and biodiversity decline. Using geographic information systems (GIS), we integrated U.S. Census and USGS National Land Cover Data, to map the Federal Register definition of WUI (Federal Register 66:751, 2001). These data are useful within a GIS for mapping and analysis at national, state, and local levels.

Characteristics and location of the wildland-urban interface in the United States
The Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) is "the area where structures and other human developments meet or intermingle with undeveloped wildland," or in more general terms, where houses or commercial development and fairly dense vegetation are both present. Interface neighborhoods are found all across the United States and include many of the sprawling areas that grew during the 1990s when low density housing spread across the landscape.
