Landfire Vegetation-FCCS Fuelbed Schema Crosswalks

The key to fuelbed mapping across the United States was a crosswalk between LANDFIRE’s existing vegetation types (EVTs), which are based on the NatureServe classification, and FCCS fuelbeds. Development of the crosswalk was led by FERA team member Anne Andreu, who identified canonical vegetation characteristics of the EVTs and their correspondence to existing FCCS fuelbeds. Where no good correspondence was found, Andreu created new fuelbeds (97 total for the CONUS and Alaska).
