The University of Alaska Southeast, staff member Mike Plivelich and faculty Sanjay Pyare, and its agency partners received a Special Achievement in GIS award from among thousands of organizations worldwide from Esri ­— Environmental Systems Research Institute, at its international conference this summer. The Southeast Alaska Hydrography Database project — “SE AK Hydro” is a component of the UAS-based Southeast Alaska GIS Library (seakgis.alaska.edu) and a collaborative effort among the USDA Forest Service, Alaska Department of Fish & Game, US Fish & Wildlife Service, US Geological Survey, and University of Alaska Southeast to develop, standardize, and unify mapping data relating to “hydrography”, e.g. streams, watersheds, shorelines, salmon occurrence, etc., for better resource management across the southeast Alaska region.
