Glacier Bay Ecosystem GISEntry ID: Inforain_USGS_GBE
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.
