Description:
Abstract:
This data is derived from the 1980 Coastal Zone Management Atlas, which was based on the Harding-Lawson Associates, Geotechnical Hazards Assesment Study, 1979. Seismic-related ground failure susceptibility has been rated from low to high. The area covered includes the Anchorage Bowl and Chugiak-Eagle River. There have been several seismic studies, but the Harding-Lawson Associates, Geotechnical Hazard Assessment Study of 1979 was what was adopted by the Anchorage Assembly to represent some level of seismically-induced ground failure suseptibility.
Purpose:
To provide a data layer for various mapping and analytical needs for use with other MOA GIS data sets. Data is stored and maintained as a feature data layer in SDE.
Supplemental_Information:
The data was digitized off 1:25000 scale maps by an outside agency. It was edited in June, 2005 for some minor changes along the shoreline, but is considered a static layer.
