LANDFIRE Remap Fuel Vegetation Cover (FVC) Micronesia

Metadata Updated: October 29, 2023

The LANDFIRE (LF) 2016 Remap (Remap) Fuel Vegetation Cover (FVC) represents a modified pre-disturbance version of the Existing Vegetation Cover (EVC) product from previous LF versions. LF Remap EVC is mapped as continuous estimates of canopy cover for tree, shrub, and herbaceous lifeforms with a potential range from 10% to 100%. To translate continuous EVC values into fuel model assignments, EVC values are binned to correspond with the bins from previous LF versions. FVC leverages fuel transition assignments related to disturbed areas by re-establishing pre-disturbance vegetation and is developed using the full suite of LF vegetation releases, plus the most recent 10 years of disturbance data. FVC is a capable fuels product that calculates Time Since Disturbance (TSD) assignments for disturbed areas using an "effective year." For example, year 2020 fuels may be calculated for the year 2020. the new process considers all the existing disturbances included in LF Remap and adjusts the TSD for these to the effective year (2020 in the example), making the products "2020 capable fuels." More information about capable fuels can be found at
