ArcFuels: an ArcGIS interface for fuel treatment planning and wildfire risk assessment

Date: June 7, 2012
Presenter(s): Nicole M. Vaillant

Potential fire behavior metrics, including fire spread, intensity, likelihood, and ecological risk need to be analyzed for proposed fuel treatment alternatives. We built ArcFuels to streamline the fuel management planning process, and provide tools for quantitative wildfire risk assessment. ArcFuels integrated a number of fire behavior models and corporate spatial data within a GIS framework. The system vastly simplifies spatial data manipulations and wildfire behavior analyses for designing and testing fuel treatment alternatives.
