Presented by Chris Toney (US Forest Service, RMRS/LANDFIRE Project) and Jeff Jones (RMRS Wildland Fire Management RD&A, Whitefish, MT).
The LANDFIRE Total Fuel Change Tool (LFTFC) allows users to edit LANDFIRE fuels attributes and associated layers directly with an ArcMap Toolbar. This webinar provides an overview of LFTFC's capabilities to edit and add rule sets for changing fuel attributes based on existing vegetation type (EVT), existing vegetation cover (EVC), existing vegetation height (EVH), biophysical settings (BPS), and disturbance which are GIS layers that are downloadable from LANDFIRE (www.landfire.gov). Fuel characteristics can be updated for both surface and canopy fuels and graphs can be created for easy interpretation.
