Description: Technological advances in the area of fuel and wildland fire management have created a need for effective decision support tools and technology training. The National Interagency Fuels Committee and LANDFIRE have chartered a team to develop science-based learning tools for assessment of fire and fuels and to provide online training and technology transfer to help managers implement fuels, fire, and vegetation assessment technology for fire risk mitigation and ecosystem restoration. The team is called the National Interagency Fuels, Fire, and Vegetation Technology Transfer (NIFTT). NIFTT has developed and maintains several GIS tools and associated user resources. In addition, NIFTT offers online courses that facilitate the implementation of these tools as well as courses focusing on topics related to the assessment of fuels, fire, and vegetation in forests and rangelands. NIFTT has also developed “Learning Pathways” to assist independent learning, which provide easy-access to related learning materials in an order designed for optimal learning efficiency.

Keywords: GIS, online resources, independent learning, LANDFIRE
