DescriptionPhoto series and their associated data provide a quick and easy way for managers to quantify and describe fuel and vegetation properties, such as loading of dead and down woody material, tree density, or height of understory vegetation. This information is critical for making fuel management decisions and for predicting fire behavior and fire effects. The Digital Photo Series (DPS) is a user-friendly, Web-based application that displays data and images from all 16 currently published volumes of the Natural Fuels Photo Series (NFPS) (42 different photo series for a total of 438 sites). The database format of DPS enables searching, downloading, customized site generation, and side-by-side comparison of data and images. DPS follows the published volumes in both content and presentation.
