Description

From the Introduction: 'The description of this package is divided into two sections namely, the fuel type boundary section and the terrain contouring section. Each section is divided further into four subsections describing: (a) the procedure for setting up and use of the digitizer; (b) the method used by the computer for processing the digitized data (c) the map scale and digitizer increment; and (d) the subroutine structure. The package is written in Fortran and is currently running on a Univac 1108. Card decks of the programs are available from the Forest Fire Research Institute.'
