Abstract

The mapping of a fuel is simply the identification of the place where a specific kind of fire behavior and difficulty, or expense, of control are expected. The article presents, in abbreviated form, instructions issued to fuel mappers in northern Idaho and western Montana. Under this method, which was developed incidental to fire control and transportation planning, fifteen million acres of national forest fuels have been mapped to date.
