Southeast Alaska GIS Libraryis a cooperative project sponsored by the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation, the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, the Alaska Department of Natural Resources, the Geographic Information Network of Alaska, The Nature Conservancy of Alaska, the National Marine Fisheries Service of NOAA, the US Forest Service, the US Fish and Wildlife Service and the University of Alaska Southeast. The project operates under the terms of a Memorandum of Understanding. Our goal is to promote the use of regional geospatial data and applications to further research and improve management of public resources in Southeast Alaska. In addition, the GIS Library provides a framework for coordinating the acquisition and sharing of spatial data between the public, researchers, educators, and managers. It also provides a forum for discussing regional data standards, future data needs, and opportunities for collaboration.
