Abstract:
Digital land cover and terrain data of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) were prduced by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Earth Resources Observation Systems Field Office, Anchorage, Alaska for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS). These and other environmental data, were incorporated into the USFWS geographic information system to prepare a comprehensive conservation plan for the ANWR and an environmental impact statement which addresses oil and gas development in the Arctic Coastal Plain, and to assist research of the Porcupine Caribou herd.
Purpose:
The data base provides researchers and managers a central area to obtain this information and is continuously being updated as new data become available. Access to the data may be found at <https://agdc.usgs.gov>.
