Abstract or Description
This map shows the location of alpine ski areas and elevation in Maine. The triangles show the location of these ski areas based on their addresses in the Ski Maine website (www.skimaine.com). Their positions on the map were determined using data from the Maine Office of GIS. If exact locations could not be determined, triangles were placed at towns closest to the ski areas, also using data from the Maine Office of GIS.
Source Data Note
Data for elevation and road networks was obtained from the US Geological Survey National Map Viewer website (nmviewogc.cr.usgs.gov/viewer.htm). All data projected in Universal Transverse Mercator, Zone 19, and use North American Datum 1983.
