This polygon layer classifies the entire province into fuel types from the Canadian Fire Behaviour Prediction System for the purpose of modeling wildfire behaviour. The source data is primarily from BC Vegetation Resource Inventory (VRI) polyons, using an algorithm based on vegetation attributes (species, tree height, density, biogeoclimatic zone, etc.). Where VRI data was unavailable (private lands, some Tree Farm Licenses, etc.), data from the Canadian Forest Service national fuel grid was used. This layer is updated semi-annually.

This data is sourced internally from the BC Wildfire Service and is not available for download at this time.
