Wetlands and Lowlands of the Kenai Peninsula, Alaska, USA

Jun 8, 2010
Description:
This dataset represents wetlands and lowlands on the Kenai Peninsula, Alaska. A plant community and locally tailored mapping classification has been created to map and describe functions of the wetlands on the Kenai Lowlands west of the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge, Alaska (the project area- Now Expanded to Include Seward). The classification has been used to map wetlands in the project area. The map is being served via by the Kenai Peninsula Borough's GIS department, so that all that is required of an potential user is access to the World Wide Web and a current web browser. The wetland polygons are served along with many layers including high resolution satellite imagery and parcel lines. The wetland polygons are linked to a web of descriptive documents incorporating plant, soils and hydrology data, and photographs. For more information about the process of mapping wetlands and lowlands on the Kenai Peninsula, along with photographs and community descriptions, go to http://www.kenaiwetlands.net/index.htm
