The U.S. Geological Survey's Alaska Mapping Initiative has released more than 400 new digital topographic maps for the state of Alaska. It doesn't stop there - the initiative will give us a clear view of Alaska, creating a complete set of more than 11,000 maps over the next 6 to 8 years. These maps update the last batch created for the state over 50 years ago, and the difference in detail and quality possible because of new mapping technology is clear.
