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
