NORAC, the North American Ornithological Atlas Committee, facilitates and encourages the use of bird atlases for mapping and monitoring birds in the Americas, particularly to help with their conservation and management.

The role of NORAC includes providing information resources such as guidelines for atlasing standards, as well as regular means of communication between states, provinces and countries involved in and/or planning bird atlases. Communication tools include meetings, resources posted on this website, and the NORAC listserv.
