Fuel Classification for the Southern Appalachian Mountains using Hyperspectral Image Analysis and Landscape Ecosystem Classification
Entry ID: USDA_SRC_fuelclassification

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This project uses a two-phase approach to model fuel loading in the region.
The first phase involves the development of a fuels classification based on
ground measurements and an existing Landscape Ecosystem Classification system
to define fuel categories, as fuel classes might be correlated with the same
variables used to define landscape units (geography and topography). Once this

Quality Data are logically consistent for measured values and conditions.

275 plots were sampled for fuels and vegetation on the Andrew Pickens Ranger
District site. GPS data were collected for each plot. 250 plots were sampled
for fuels and vegetation at the remaining three research locations. GPS data
were collected at over 75% of the plots in these three locations.
