The FRCC Mapping Tool quantifies the departure of vegetation conditions and fire regimes from a set of reference conditions representing the historical range of variation. The tool, which operates from an ArcGIS platform, derives several metrics of departure (e.g., vegetation composition and structure, fire severity, and fire frequency) by comparing current conditions to reference conditions. FRCC Mapping Tool outputs can be used to develop management plans and treatment strategies aimed at restoring vegetation conditions and/or disturbance regimes.
