Abstract. At present, the appraisal of forest fire danger degree is the base for all the forest fire management system. Because of the difference in the appraisal standards and regional environment, the index system, index weight, and quantitative index value will vary. The paper set up six categories of 16 basic indexes and introduced space index concept considering with the natural environment, social and economical environment, and forestry resource in Lin’an city comprehensively. The paper developed the regional forest danger rating appraisal system with ArcGIS and C#, and realized the dynamic appraisal for forest danger degree. The result is: in Yuqian town, the area of rank IV of forest fire danger covers about 5% area of forest, so the strict fire prevention measures should be adopted; 13% of the area has potential forest fire of rank III of forest fire danger, so people should strengthen their fire accident consciousness; about half of the area is of the rank II of forest fire danger, and 32% of the area is of rank I of forest fire danger, so people should take the daily fire prevention measures.
