Description

ANNOTATION: WEBOFIRE links stand inventory data and visualizations with the Fire and Fuels Extension (FFE; http://www.fs.fed.us/fmsc/fvs/description/ffe-fvs.shtml) and the Fuel Characteristic Classification System (FCCS; http://www.fs.fed.us/pnw/fera/fccs) to estimate fire and fuel potentials. WEBOFIRE provides the user with estimates of fire hazard associated with existing forest conditions in terms of fire behavior potential, crown fire potential, and available fuel potential; estimates of the effectiveness of the selected treatment alternative in reducing hazard; estimates of net revenue associated with the selected treatment alternative. DATA REQUIREMENTS: Three options: 1) select stand by visualization, 2) Enter stand inventory data (Species, trees per acre by diameter class, height, and crown ratio), 3) Upload existing stand data (XML file).
