The GeoData Center houses approximately 25,000 photographic images of Alaska and adjacent waters in the AVHRR (Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer) HRPT (High Resolution Picture Transmission) archive. Data in the archive dates back to 1974, from polar-orbiting satellites NOAA 2-12. Each image covers a 200 km wide swath at a resolution of 1.1 km.
