Wildland fire risk assessment and fuel management
planning on federal lands in the U.S. is a complex problem that often
requires advanced fire behavior modeling and intensive spatial data
analyses. Both the benefits and potential impacts of proposed fuel
treatments must be clearly demonstrated in the context of land management
goals and public expectations. 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 an ArcMap
toolbar. The toolbar vastly simplifies spatial data manipulations and
wildfire behavior analyses for designing and testing fuel treatment
