The Federal Land Manager Environmental Database (FED) is an online repository of air quality data and metadata sponsored by the National Park Service and the U.S. Forest Service.
FED has been developed to help states, tribes, federal land managers (FLMs), scientists, planners, and students evaluate air quality and visibility in federally-protected ecosystems using a variety of national and regional air quality datasets.
FED imports and maintains data from over two dozen monitoring networks and is constantly updating these datasets as new data becomes available from the source providers.
The FED website offers a variety of online air quality analysis tools and currently has over 2000 registered users from over 100 different countries and hosts thousands of visitors each month.
The FED team also develops and maintains the IMPROVE website, the WRAP Technical Support System (TSS), and the Intermountain West Data Warehouse, all of which utilize the foundational database and software architecture developed for FED.
Ongoing development and maintenance of FED is conducted by Colorado State University's Cooperative Institute for Research in the Atmosphere (CIRA) in Fort Collins, Colorado.
Visitors to the FED website are encouraged to register and provide comments, questions, and feedback to the FED team regarding all aspects of the website and database.
