Alaska Geographic Data Committee

The Alaska Geographic Data Committee (AGDC) was organized in the early 1990s to support the initiatives and goals of the Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC) in Alaska through the coordination of geospatial data activities and to promote data sharing among the Federal, state, Native, local, commercial, and non-governmental (NGO) member agencies. The Committee is co-chaired by the USGS National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI) Geospatial Liaison for Alaska and the Chief, Land Records Information System, State of Alaska Department of Natural Resources. The USGS Alaska Science Center Geographic Science operates and maintains the AGDC National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI) Clearinghouse to serve that purpose. This allows Committee members easy and real-time access to this public domain geospatial data that is not dependent on outside Internet lines; provides local contact information for data acquisition, archiving, and technical assistance; and assists in the coordination of geospatial data collection and planning among the Committee members to reduce costs and avoid duplication of effort. There are currently over 65 official members of the AGDC.
