Fuel Characteristic Classification System Fuelbeds

The Fuel Characteristic Classification System Fuelbeds (FCCS) layer describes the physical characteristics of a relatively uniform unit on a landscape that represents a distinct fire environment. FCCS provides standardized descriptions of fuelbeds and fire hazard. The system is designed to provide land managers, regulators, and scientists with a nationally consistent and durable procedure to characterize and classify fuel.

The FCCS layer was created with default fuelbeds provided by the FCCS software.

FCCS facilitates the mapping of fuel characteristics and fire hazard assessments, and landscape level spatial fire effects simulations. The FCCS layer can serve as input to wildland fire effects models.
