IFTDSS version 3.0: IFTDSS is a web-based software and data integration framework that organizes previously existing and newly developed fire and fuels software applications to make fuels treatment planning and analysis more efficient and effective.  Link

Interagency Smoke Committee (SmoC): This website offers tools for managing smoke such as smoke dispersion models, weather and smoke forecasts, and monitoring equipment and methods. Link

iTree: USDA Forest Service software provides urban forestry analysis and benefits assessment tools. Link

Landscape Treatment Designer (LTD): Program for fuel treatment planning to help design fuel treatment scenarios according to spatial and non-spatial objectives. Link

My Fuel Treatment Planner (MyFTP): Designed for planners working at the national forest district level (or similarly sized unit) to estimate costs, revenues, economic impacts, and surface fuels resulting from fuel reduction operations. It is only applicable to dry forest in the western US. Link

NetMap: Community-based watershed science system comprised of uniform digital watershed databases, analysis tools, and technical support materials, addressing a variety of watershed characteristics. Link

Pile Calculator: The calculated developed by this project allows land managers to more accurately assess biomass in hand piles, leading to better smoke production estimates, improved burn scheduling, and more accurate compliance with the maximum allowable emissions limits as determined by various state smoke management plans. Link

Smoke Information for Oregon: This site is an effort by many city, county, tribal, state and federal agencies to coordinate and aggregate information for Oregon communities affected by wildfire smoke. The information is posted here by the agencies themselves while volunteers built and are maintaining the page. Link

Smoke Information for Washington: This site is an effort by many city, county, tribal, state and federal agencies to coordinate and aggregate information for Washington communities affected by smoke from wildfire. The information is posted here by the agencies themselves while volunteers built and are maintaining the page. Link

Template for Assessing Climate Change Impacts and Management Options (TACCIMO): A web-based tool that connects forest planning to current climate change science. Link

Tribal Connections: Tribal Connections, a new interactive online mapping tool, was recently released by the U.S. Forest Service (USFS). The map shows overlap between USFS-administered lands, current tribal trust lands, and tribal lands exchanged with the federal government prior to 1900. The mapping tool illustrates where historical treaties influence current land management planning and decision making. Link

US National Fire Danger Rating System (NFDRS2016): To develop consistency among protection agencies, the National Fire Danger Rating System (NFDRS) was developed in the early 70’s. It was designed around four basic guidelines. The research charter said the National Fire Danger Rating System would be:a. Scientifically based.b. Adaptable to the needs of local managers.c. Applicable anywhere in the country.d. Reasonably inexpensive to operate. Link

Web Fire Mapper: The NASA FIRMS Web Fire Mapper is now live, with VIIRS 375m data as well as MODIS. The two data sets have good agreement for hotspot detection, but the improved spatial resolution of the 375m data provides a greater response over fires of relatively small areas and provides improved mapping of large fire perimeters. Link

Wildland Fire Air Quality Tools Portal: Centralizes access to a number of air quality tools. Link

Wildland Fire Decision Support System (WFDSS): An integrated system that assists fire managers and analysts in making strategic and tactical decisions for fire incidents and incident reporting. Link

Wildland Fire Emissions Information System (WFEIS): The Wildland Fire Emissions Information System (WFEIS) is a web-based tool that provides users a simple interface for computing wildland fire emissions across CONUS and Alaska at landscape to regional scales (1-km spatial resolution). Link

Wildland Fire Management Research, Development & Application: The RD&A Program sponsors and guides the development and application of wildland scientific knowledge; develops decision support tools; and provides science application services to the interagency wildland fire community. Link

WindNinja: WindNinja is a computer program that computes spatially varying wind fields for wildland fire and other applications requiring high resolution wind prediction in complex terrain. Link

WRAP Tools: A web page with information and access to the Deterministic and Empirical Assessment of Smoke's Contribution to Ozone (DEASCO3), Western Regional Air Partnership Fire Emissions Tracking System (WRAPFETS), and PMDETAIL Link

WWETAC Threat Mapper: Online system for detecting, mapping, and assessing wildland threats. Link
