U.S. Geological Survey’s Alaska Mapping Initiative
Track: National Mapping
Authors: Becci Anderson, Tracy Fuller
The USGS has embarked on a multi-year program, the Alaska Mapping Initiative (AMI), to map Alaska statewide at 1:25,000 scale and vastly improve Alaska data maintained in The National Map, with the data supporting US Topo products for Alaska. Significant funding and effort are focused on acquiring statewide 5-meter ifsar elevation data and improvement of hydrography data. We will present the data status, review partnerships involved and present how GIS data and maps are delivered to the public.
