The First Order Fire Effects Model Mapping Tool (FOFEMMT) provides an interface between ArcGIS desktop software and the First Order Fire Effects Model (FOFEM) (Reinhardt 2003). FOFEM is a non-spatial fire effects analysis program that computes potential first order fire effects (fuel consumption, smoke emissions, soil heating, and tree mortality). First order fire effects are considered to represent the direct or immediate consequences of fire. The FOFEMMT is a custom ArcMap toolbar that integrates and runs FOFEM and other fire environment and fire behavior models in the background.
