FlamMap: A Fire Behavior Mapping and Analysis Program
Entry ID: FlamMap

[ Get Service ]
[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: FlamMap is a fire behavior mapping and analysis program that computes potential fire behavior characteristics (spread rate, flame length, fireline intensity, etc.) over an entire FARSITE landscape for constant weather and fuel moisture conditions.

FlamMap is widely used by the USDI National Park Service, USDA Forest Service, and other federal and state land management agencies in support of fire management activities. It is designed for use by users familiar with fuels, weather, topography, wildfire situations and the associated terminology. Because of its complexity, only users with the proper fire behavior training and experience should use FlamMap where the outputs are to be used for making fire and land management decisions.
