Abstract:
The United States Geological Survey (USGS) and Interrain Pacific are please to help make available to the public this integrated Geographic Information System for the Glacier Bay / northern Southeast Alaska ecosystem. The USGS-Interrain Pacific partnership focused on collecting and integrating GIS data sets from many agencies and organizations and to them go credit for the large majority of data layers on this CD. This CDROM set contains more than one hundred different spatial data sets covering the greater Glacier Bay, Alaska area, roughly stretching from Yakutat in the north to south of Admiralty Island. These data sets are stored in Arc/Info format and have been integrated into a cohesive Geographical Information System (GIS) covering much of the northern Southeast Alaska area. In addition to these data sets, the CDROMs contain a user's guide and data catalog, a scientific bibliography of the Glacier Bay area, metadata records for many other GIS data sets that are not included on this CD, and profiles of current research being conducted in the Glacier Bay area. Lastly, we are pleased to include an extensive set of Web pages giving an overview of the natural history of Glacier Bay and northern Southeast Alaska.
