Title: BehavePlus and FlamMap Technology Transfer

Project Proposal Abstract: Development of the BehavePlus fire modeling system and the FlamMap fire behavior analysis and mapping system and supporting technology transfer material was funded in part under JFSP project #98-1-8-02. After successful completion of that project, development of those systems and supporting material has continued under other funding. BehavePlus is used for such applications as prediction of the behavior of an ongoing fire, prescribed fire planning, and fuel hazard assessment. FlamMap is used for landscape fuel and fire potential assessment. Features are being added FlamMap to address questions about fuel treatment placement. FlamMap is being used in JFSP project #01-1-3-21 "Cumulative effects of fuel management on landscape-scale fire behavior and effects." BehavePlus is part of S490 and other NWCG training courses. FlamMap is included in S493 and has the potential to be a key component of future courses directed to wildland fire and fuel management. A significant amount of technology transfer material has been developed to support these systems. There is a need for additional material to cover expanded capabilities. For BehavePlus we will develop material packaged for presentation by others including a half-day workshop and a 3-day course. Existing tutorials and online help will be updated and improved. For FlamMap, online help and tutorials will be developed to describe the new features. BehavePlus, FlamMap, and FARSITE are related systems. Products produced under this project will strengthen the relationship.
