Office of Coast Survey Navigation Services and
Marine Chart Divisions
  • Alaska regional Navigation Manager working with
    local Coast Guard, harbor safety committees,
    pilots, and recreational groups to address local
    issues.
  • Updates to nautical charts
  • proposing revisions to the nautical charts of
    Beecher Pass
  • chart 17430, Tongass Narrows, Ketchikan has
    been issued
  • Seven New Charts and Chart Reconstruction for
    Alaska, in support of increased cruise industry
    activity, private loading facilities, and
    infrastructure.
  • Upcoming priorities for Alaska
  • fishing ports
  • Coast Guard requirements

4
Office of Coast Survey Hydrographic Surveys
Division
  • Two hydrographic survey vessels assigned to
    projects in Alaska
  • During the next three years, these ships will
    survey critical areas in
  • Southeast Alaska
  • Prince William Sound
  • Southwestern Alaska Peninsula
  • Other firms under contract to provide
    hydrographic surveying services,

National Geodetic Survey Geodetic Control
  • Defines and manages the national coordinate
    system
  • National Continuously Operating Reference Station

National Geodetic Survey Shoreline Mapping and
Nearshore Hydrography
  • Cape Edgecombe, Alaska
  • Demonstration Project
  • Collect topographic and bathymetric information
    safely and at same temporal scale
  • LIDAR can be used to derive shoreline and
    near-shore hydrography in a timely manner
  • More information is necessary to attribute
    features (Data Fusion Approach)
  • Single platform operation for increased
    efficiency

  • Uses a geographic information system (GIS) to
    illustrate the descriptions of the ecosystem and
    human dimension.
  • Predicts effects of natural and anthropogenic
    variability
  • Promotes management, research, and education

Regional Ocean Information Systems
  • Provide spatial data that decision makers
    need to promote regional approaches to
    resource management
  • ocean observations
  • physical and biological resources
  • management boundaries
  • Established for southeast, and in
    development for Gulf of Mexico in response
    to the Ocean Action Plan
  • Alaska
  • In 2002, resource agencies identified
    information needs that could be met by
    a regional information system
