Arctic Strategic Transportation and Resource (ASTAR) Cost Surface (CS) Analysis Tools

The Arctic Strategic Transportation and Resources (ASTAR) project worked with North Slope communities and regional stakeholders to identify infrastructure development projects that offered the most cumulative benefit by prioritizing community and cultural connectivity, regional support, reduced cost of living and increased safety. The project was a collaborative effort initiated by the Alaska Department of Natural Resources in partnership with the North Slope Borough.

The ASTAR team developed specialized geographic cost surface analysis tools for this project. These tools were used to create cost surfaces that were used in site/route selection. Documentation and access to these tools are provided below.

TRAINING VIDEO: This video includes instructions and a demonstration for how to use the ASTAR Site Selection Tool using an example that scored well according to the Project Prioritization Tool: A permanent road connecting Wainwright, Utqiagvik, and Atqasuk. It begins with an ASTAR project overview, then continues showing how to access the tool, system requirements and tool setup. Prior to the demonstration, we discuss how to identify and collect the Site Selection Criteria and related GIS layers.

Further description of the ASTAR project is also available using the link to ASTAR Methods or at the DNR ASTAR project website available from the link below.
