Land Cover Classification (0)
This datasets represents a Land Cover Classification (LCC) performed by Western Heritage of Saskatoon. Using SPOT 4 satellite imagery (provided by BlackBridge Geomatics Corp. of Calgary, Alta) a classification was performed on an ecoregion by ecoregion basis to obtain land cover classes that would be representative of forest fuels/reclassified to Candian Forest Service (CFS) fueltypes for fire modelling purposes.
FBP Fuel Type (1)
The FBP system organizes fuels into five major groups (coniferous, deciduous, mixedwood, slash and open), with a total number of 16 discrete fuel types for Canada; Saskatchewan using only 10. These fuel types are used to describe fire behaviour characteristics that would be expected under various burning conditions.
