    Data Type: Remotely Sensed Data; The French Earth Observation Satellite, SPOT, produces digital satellite imagery with the highest spatial resolution that is commercially available. Panchromatic (black and white) imagery has a resolution of 10x10 meters, and is commonly used for detailed mapping, feature identification, change detection, and updating of vector files. Multispectral imagery (visible and infrared) has a resolution of 20x20 meters and is used for land use and land cover mapping and natural resource studies. SPOT Image offers its digital ortho-imagery in standard 7.5, 15, and 30 minute map frames.

    Data Type: Ocean/Coasts ; Topographic maps of the sea floor. Through the use of detailed depth contours and full use of bathymetric data, the size, shape and distribution of underwater features are vividly portrayed. Scale for all Prince William Sound maps is 1:250,000. The regional map for the Gulf of Alaska (an incomplete blueprint) includes Glacier Bay and is at a scale of 1:1,000,000.

    Data Type: Base Maps; The DCW is a vector basemap of the world at a scale of 1:1,000,000 developed by ESRI for ARC/INFO. The database consists of geographic, attribute, and textual data that is divides the world into 2,094 fifteen by fifteen degree tiles that are each subdivided into five by five degree tiles. Over 200 attributes are included in 17 thematic layers. The DCW is 1.7 gigabytes in size distributed on four CD-ROMs. There is an Alaska module to this dataset that is available, that consists of all available layers covering only the State of Alaska. Grid-arendal Global Resource Information database sponsored by the United Nations have produced a similar subsection of the DCW for the polar region of the world, north of 45 degree latitude. The potential user will need to consult the DCW data dictionary for a complete review of database contents.

    Bathymetric contours were generated from soundings collected by National Ocean Service vessels from 1900 to 1971. The 1:250,000 maps are available for U.S. coastal waters. Bathymetric contours are in meters, with 10 meter intervals out to 200 m, supplemented by 2 m contours. Beyond 200 m, contours are at 50 m intervals to maximum depth. The GIS database derived from these maps includes the Bering, Chukchi, and Beaufort Seas in western and northern Alaska. Approximately 100 maps.

    Data Type: Recreation ; This layer contains data on camping beaches in the Prince William Sound and Copper River Delta region. The data was collected during a conference on "Critical Forest Habitats in the Greater Prince William Sound" in Cordova, Alaska in November 1992 sponsored by the Prince William Sound Science Center and the US Forest Service Copper River Delta Institute. This layer is based on areas mapped during the conference by recognized experts and users.
