The purpose of this project is to improve fuel model mapping and associated wildfire behavior outputs for Texas.  The primary objective is to utilize existing datasets from Landfire, MoRAP and Texas A&M Forest Service to produce a new surface fuel model map for Texas with an estimated completion date of June 2010. A secondary objective is to identify a better process to map surface fuel models in Texas for future projects.

Staff provided input to Texas A&M Forest Service experts to improve results for fire risk mapping in Texas.
