Webinar 2015: Alaska’s National Hydrography Dataset (NHD), the digital data layer that depicts the location of lakes and streams, was originally created from the 1950’s topographic maps. With funding support from the LCC Network, this project focused on establishing a statewide framework to improve the hydrography mapping and stewardship in Alaska. This will be achieved through the creation of a statewide system to make digital mapping data updates accessible and affordable, and through the creation of a statewide hydrography mapping coordinator position to synchronize updates and guide hydrography mapping development. This framework will allow agencies and organizations to greatly improve their hydrography mapping...

This strategic plan is a guiding framework that lays out the objectives and goals for Alaska Hydrology Technical Working Group and AK Hydro to accomplish high-resolution statewide hydrography updates that meet national mapping standards and local partners’ needs.The strategic plan identifies five key objec-tives: 1) Map Alaska’s Water 2) Support Alaska’s Hydrography Needs 3) provide Hydrography Services 4) establish a Sus-tainable Hydrography future and 5) allow for Data Integration. These strategic objectives will give AK Hydro and AHTWG success in meeting the mission to efficiently serve the hydrography needs of Alaska. The objectives as-sist in mapping the surface water of Alaska, meeting NHD standards, securing...

Alaska is an expansive state with abundant water resources. The complex landscape is defined by water and ice, but Alaska lacks quality mapping of its surface water features. The Alaska Hydrography Technical Working Group and Alaska Hydrography Database have worked to establish the Alaska Hydrography Strategic Plan to promote and guide a core mission to efficiently serve the current and future hydrography needs of Alaska for the next five years. This work will update the state’s hydrography in the National Hydrography Database from its current condition to meet national 1:24,000-scale standards. This work has focused on coordination of hydrography needs with partners and land managers, planning for the future hydrography...
ScienceBase brings together the best information it can find about USGS researchers and offices to show connections to publications, projects, and data. We are still working to improve this process and information is by no means complete. If you don't see everything you know is associated with you, a colleague, or your office, please be patient while we work to connect the dots. Feel free to contact sciencebase@usgs.gov.
