Toolik Field Station GIS develops, assembles, archives and distributes spatial data germaine to research, management and logistics in the Toolik region.

Past protocol included limited online dataset distribution directly through this website. Thinking and practice related to Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) have evolved rapidly in recent years. Several initiatives are underway to create coherent Alaskan and Arctic data portals which will leverage the distributed nodes among agencies, institutions and the private sector for better coordinated and faster data discovery and delivery.

Direct web access to Toolik GIS data will again be supported once these come to fruition. In the meantime, the vast majority of TFS GIS data is considered appropriate for public distribution and will be provided upon request. Please e-mail requests and related questions to
