Prior to the MTBS.gov website update in Summer 2017, this dataset had multipart features displaying a separate record for each polygon (i.e., multipart features exploded). In the current version of the website, multipart features in the attribute table have been modified to reflect a one-to-one relationship to the number of published fires (i.e., multipart features unexploded). Therefore, the number of records in the attribute table is reduced and accounts for the discrepancy in the number of records between the two versions.
