This spring a series of additional datasets have been added to the portal including SAR sea ice imagery, shorezone biological and geological characterizations, NWS ice desk forecasts, and more. A stakeholder workshop was held in Anchorage on April 16th to present the tool and discuss next steps.

AOOS and partners have received funding from NOAA to develop data visualization tools for Alaska’s Arctic. The collection and synthesis of spatial data into a suite of visualization tools is a critical step for long-term collaborative planning in Alaska for a wide range of coastal uses.  This project is called STAMP.

  • Goal: Develop data integration & visualization tools that could be used for future decision-making relating to potential commercial fisheries in the Arctic.
  • Area of focus: Northern Bering and Chukchi Seas
  • Timeline: 2.5 years, starting Jan 2012
  • Funding: NOAA’s Regional Ocean Partnership Program spacer

STAMP will produce 5 deliverables:

  1. An assessment of data and information products and tools needed for planning for future Arctic commercial fisheries, and identification of data layers that currently do not exist in Alaska. Read the scoping report.
  2. Identification of synergies with existing planning efforts for data and tools
  3. Documentation of existing data products and tools used in Alaska, and an assessment of new products and tools and their potential applicability to Alaska. Read the tools report.
  4. Incorporation of existing data layers into the AOOS Arctic Ocean Portal. View the portal to-date.
  5. Assessment of the AOOS Arctic Portal (enhanced with datasets identified and synthesized through this project) for use in planning and decision-support for Arctic commercial fisheries.
