Mapping SE Alaska's highs and lows

Posted: October 29, 2012 - 11:03pm

Southeast Alaska could soon have access to updated topological maps.

Furgo EarthData, Inc. announced its contract award on Oct 23. The project continues to use the GIS services and support firm’s GeoSAR airborne radar mapping.

“Alaska is the only state in the nation without modern, uniform elevation data,” said Nick Mastrodicasa, project manager of the Statewide Digital Mapping Initiative for the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities, in a press release.

GeoSAR radar peers through cloud and foliage, ideal for Southeast’s climate and rainforest. More accurate regional maps allow for more accurate storm surge, floodplain and tsunami inundation analysis in Southeast Alaska.

Digital surface models, digital terrain models and orthorectified radar imagery is scheduled for completion in early 2013, according to the release.
