Short summary
This paper presents the first global fuel data set, containing all the parameters required to be input in the Fuel Characteristic Classification System (FCCS). It was developed from different spatial variables, both based on satellite Earth Observation products and fuel databases. This data set could be used for different applications, including fire danger assessment, fire behavior estimations, fuel consumption calculations and emissions inventories.
