The Landscape (LCP) file, a multi-band raster format, is commonly used by wildland fire behavior and fire effects models such as FARSITE and FlamMap. The bands of an LCP file store data describing terrain, tree canopy, and surface fuel. This LCP file utilizes LANDFIRE (LF) data, such as the optional crown fuel bands (canopy height, canopy base height, canopy bulk density), but currently does not include the optional surface fuel bands.
