The FIREMON Analysis Tools component encompasses two major tasks: 1) data entry and 2) data analysis. Data entry is accomplished in FIREMON by physically entering the collected field data into a set of standardized Microsoft Access databases. Data analysis is accomplished using a set of database queries and computer programs developed specifically for FIREMON. The analysis package can also produce the necessary files to run the Forest Vegetation Simulator and the associated Fire and Fuels Extension. Lastly, data can be exported in comma-delimited format for input into spreadsheets or statistical programs.
