The degree of accuracy needed in a fuel type map depends on the purpose to be served. If fuel classifications are to be used as a basis for dispatching action, a high degree of accuracy is essential. If they are to serve only as a means of classifying and defining total fire danger for planning purposes, a much more extensive classification of fuels will be appropriate. The degree of total fire danger represented by the fuel hazards, the human and lightning risks and the values at stake should logically determine the purpose to be served by a fuel classification and the degree of accuracy appropriate.
