Data Quality

FCCS fuelbeds contain an overall rating for the quality of the data used for creating the fuelbed. The rankings are as follows:

  1. No data (no hard numbers for any data value) - created from experience and/or ecological literature
  2. Partial data - less than 35% of mode inputs from literature, photo series, or peer-reviewed data source
  3. Partial data - 35-85% of mode inputs from literature, photo series, or peerreviewed data source
  4. Data driven - 85-100% of mode inputs from photo series or peer-reviewed data source
  5. Data driven - 85-100% of all data (min, max, mode) from photo series or peer reviewed data source

Custom fuelbeds are not assigned a data quality ranking.
