Product Abstract

This strategic plan is a guiding framework that lays out the objectives and goals for Alaska Hydrology Technical Working Group and AK Hydro to accomplish high-resolution statewide hydrography updates that meet national mapping standards and local partners’ needs. The strategic plan identifies five key objec-tives: 1) Map Alaska’s Water 2) Support Alaska’s Hydrography Needs 3) provide Hydrography Services 4) establish a Sus-tainable Hydrography future and 5) allow for Data Integration. These strategic objectives will give AK Hydro and AHTWG success in meeting the mission to efficiently serve the hydrography needs of Alaska. The objectives as-sist in mapping the surface water of Alaska, meeting NHD standards, securing funding to complete hydrography updates, engaging part-ners, identifying needs and integrating with national and local datasets.
