For Alaskans, we feel a bit under-appreciated when it comes to maps of the USA. Of the 3,794,083 square miles we think of as the land of stars and stripes, 663,267 square miles are thanks to the 49th State of Alaska. That’s 17%!! [1]

To rectify all the times there are USA maps and Alaska is either missing or looks like an island off the coast of California, I made this map. USA map

Actually, I should say I tweaked this Mapbox map, because I just swapped the bounds for the inlays to put Alaska in the primary frame.

I’m just learning how to run this website that is running on Jekyll so bear with me.
