"The Iqaluit Declaration 2015 and the CAFF 2015-2017 Work Plan identified the Arctic Spatial Data Infrastructure (Arctic SDI) as a partner in the CAFF Arctic Biodiversity Data Service (ABDS) and highlighted the importance of a Pan-Arctic digital elevation map for which a project plan is being developed (described in a separate CAFF status memo). The Arctic SDI is a cooperation between eight Arctic National Mapping Agencies whose Board includes the Mapping Directors of those Agencies.
