Topic: The Alaska Resource Data File (ARDF): More Than Just a Database
Noon Luncheon 11:30-1:00 pm
The Alaska Resource Data File (ARDF) contains over 7,000 georeferenced records of metallic mineral occurrences, prospects, deposits, and mines in Alaska. It is a powerful GIS tool for geologists as well as the general public. This talk will demonstrate the newest features of ARDF and future plans for this evolving database.
