Review of FRCC and LANDFIRE Fire Regime Mapping methods. Fire Regime Condition Classes (FRCC) Version 2000 underestimated the departure in Range and Shrublands. It is difficult to extrapolate these numbers to the conterminous US. LANDFIRE can provide finer scale data. LANDFIRE's objective is to provide the spatial data and predictive models needed by land and fire managers to prioritize, evaluate, plan, complete, and monitor fuel treatment and restoration projects, essential to achieving the goals targeted in the Joint Cohesive Strategy and National Fire Plan.
