Purpose

The Map Index interactive web mapping application will make it easier for anyone with Internet access to find the geologic maps they need to perform research, make informed resource- and land-management decisions, and better understand the geology across the state. This project was initiated and originally funded through the federal Minerals Data and Information Rescue in Alaska (MDIRA) program and continues to be supported by State of Alaska general funds.
