project objectives
Project Objectives

Develop an objective prioritization process that

• identifies geographic areas with high fire hazard

• in proximity to populated areas

• where management actions might

- reduce fire hazard

- improve local economies

FY02 - Regional prioritization

FY03 and beyond- Finer scale prioritizations

slide3
Research Partners

• PNW Focused Science Delivery Program

• NC Forest Inventory and Analysis

• PNW FERA Team

• RMRS Economics

role for research
Role for Research
  • • Assemble national data on each factor
    • - geographic link
    • - ensure data quality
  • • Develop a system that
  • - combines factors
  • - compares geographic regions
slide5

Factors that address 4 questions:

(1) Where are the combustible materials?

(2) Where are the combustible materials in hazardous conditions?

(3) Are there populations in close proximity?

(4) Would management actions to reduce the hazard also improve the local economy?

conclusions
Conclusions

• We have developed techniques to acquire and display factors (variables, data layers).

• We can combine factors in ways that display differences among regions.

• We need help

- selecting the important factors.

- selecting factor weightings
