FlamMap Training

Informal Training Help System

There are tutorials in the online help system included with FlamMap. In FlamMap select the Help > Contents command and begin by reading the Using FlamMap Online Help page.

The help system and accompanying tutorials were updated as part of JFSP project 05-4-1-23. It includes more material on the Minimum Travel Time fire growth method and the Treatment Optimization Model.

We are currently updating the existing FlamMap Help file to account for recent additions and enhancements to the program with the release of FlamMap5. The existing Help file is still valid for use with the program. The Release Notes for FlamMap5 discuss the new enhancements for the program.
