More about STAMP

 

This project began in 2012 with funding from NOAA to develop a data integration and visualization tool for Alaska’s Arctic.  The goal was to create a tool that could be helpful to future decision-making relating to potential commercial fisheries, while also being applicable to the variety of other management issues facing the region.

The content and design of the tool were developed based on input from managers, practitioners, residents, and a nine person project advisory committee. The result is an interactive portal where users can search, explore and overlay over 200 data layers ranging from sea ice coverage and forecast models to critical habitat and vessel tracks.  It also contains future climate change scenarios and social and economic data for communities. For more on the project, visit the STAMP website.
