The following is a list of Alaskan place names found in logbooks. Where possible, the name contains a link to more information.
Note that latitude and longitude are given in decimal degrees
- A latitude with no sign (positive) is in the northern hemisphere.
- A latitude with a negative sign is in the southern hemisphere.
- A longitude with no sign (positive) is in the eastern hemisphere.
- A longitude with a negative sign is in the western hemisphere.
We have done our best to locate these places correctly, but there still may be errors. Remember that the same name is sometimes used for many places, so it is possible that the place listed here is not the place you are searching for. Sometimes the name of a place has changed over time or has simply been misspelled by the log keeper. We have included the variants we have seen in the logbooks and have also tried to include the current, standard name. When there are multiple entries for the same place, the information is only included with one.
