In partnership with scientists and managers, we produce and sponsor story maps to share information about specific topics in support of fire and fuels management.

A Short Tour of the Interagency Fuel Treatment Decision Support System (IFTDSS)

The Interagency Fuels Treatment Decision Support System (IFTDSS) is a web-based application designed to make fuels treatment planning and analysis more efficient and effective. The program was developed in coordination with fire managers and provides access to data and models through one simple user interface. It is available, free, to all interested users, regardless of agency or organizational affiliation. It was designed for use at the Project (100s-1,000s ac) and Unit scales (1,000s to 3.5M ac). 

This new Story Map, created by the Northern Rockies Fire Science Network and the Wildland Fire Management RD&A, provides an overview of the components and uses for IFTDSS and includes many links to additional resources.
