Abstract

Fire behavior modeling and geospatial analysis can provide tremendous insight to land managers in defining both the benefits and potential impacts of fuel treatments in the context of land management goals and public expectations. ArcFuels is a streamlined fuel management planning and wildfire risk assessment system that creates a trans-scale (stand to large landscape) interface for applying existing forest and fire behavior models within an ArcGIS® platform to design and test fuel treatment alternatives.
