Can you tell me what exists in Europe for a Forest Fire Fuel Model Layer or a vegetation cover layer. I am a Forest Fire Behavior Analyst that has moved to Sweden. We want to develop a digitized layer of the existing vegetation to facilitate predicting fire risk (before a fire occurs) and predicting a fire's behavior (when we are unable to stop it in our initial attempt). We believe a 30 m resolution would be ideal. Corine Land Cover seems to not map smaller than 25 ha. While searching the web, I have discovered that Greece, Portugal and Italy have done some work in this direction.
