The Barrow area on the North Slope of Alaska is one of the most intensely sampled locations in the Arctic with research sites dating back to the 1940s. The Barrow Area Information Database (BAID) is a resource for learning about the types of data collection activities in the region. The BAID team collaborates with scientists and the local community to compile and share this information via online web mapping applications.
Data sets unique to BAID are available via Barrow Area Information Database (BAID) Geospatial Data Sets at the Earth Observing Lab at: https://data.eol.ucar.edu/dataset/106.ARCSS400.
Metadata that meets the standards of the Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC) is available (or under development) for many data layers in BAID-IMS. Data that is considered unrestricted can be downloaded at the Arctic System Science (ARCSS) Data Coordination Center (ADCC) at the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) located at University of Colorado in Boulder, USA.
In 2003, BASC's Digital Subcommittee saw an opportunity to visual the BAID database with Internet Map Server (IMS) technology and commonly requested base maps. The BAID-IMS prototype was soon released.
