FFI (FEAT/FIREMON Integrated) is an interagency plot-level monitoring software application designed to assist managers with collection, storage and analysis of ecological information. It was developed through a complementary integration of the Fire Ecology Assessment Tool (FEAT) and FIREMON. FFI is funded by the Department of the Interior and US Forest Service, and developed in cooperation with Axiom IT Solutions.
