The DSLR layer is one input to the forest flammability risk model, adapted by Conservation International’s Firecast initiative from the US Forest Service’s National Fire Danger Rating System. The model determines when weather conditions would permit fires to burn and spread, and could be used to identify when fire prevention measures could be applied to reduce fire risk. Further details about the model can be read in Steininger et al. (2013).
