Data Center Description
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's Alaska region has been actively collecting
and analyzing spatially- referenced (GIS) data since the early 1980's. Over the
years, many data themes have been collected and applied, using a continually
evolving suite of software and hardware. Specially designed, in-house
application software has been the heart of numerous and widely differing GIS
solutions to often very complex analysis requirements. Most projects require
specific biological data layers and one or more generalized base data layers.

Currently, formal GIS data documentation (metadata) is developed under the
guidelines of the Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGBC) utilizing the
National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI).
