Kodiak Tourism Map to be Updated
Kodiak's tourism bureau is working on updating a visitors' map of Kodiak.
KODIAK- Kodiak's tourism bureau is working on updating a visitors' map of Kodiak.
Thousands of visitors use Discover Kodiak's street map each year.
Discover Kodiak's member services manager Chastity Starrett is in charge of the mapping project.
The street layout hasn't changed much in the two years since the current map was created.
However, businesses have switched locations and some have gone out of business.
Starrett says the upcoming map is being developed in coordination with the Kodiak Island Borough's mapping department.
The map to be constructed will show terrain elevations and store locations, as well as a street grid.
The final product is expected to be ready by January.
