USGS Alaska Mapping Initiative

The Alaska Mapping Initiative is a U.S. Geological Survey program to support and improve maps and digital map data for Alaska, bringing Alaska topographic map and digital map data quality in line with the conterminous United States.

The goal of the Alaska Mapping Initiative (AMI) is to acquire and enhance foundational digital map layers such as elevation, surface water, and boundaries that will be used to produce new US Topo maps for Alaska. This multi-year mapping initiative will improve The National Map's Alaska data to benefit high-priority applications in safety, planning, research, and resource management.

The USGS is coordinating with the State of Alaska and multiple Federal agencies to accomplish these tasks through partnerships such as the Alaska Statewide Digital Mapping Initiative and the Alaska Mapping Executive Committee.
