Welcome to the ArcFuels User Page


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 alternatives.
