GINA is a mechanism within the University of Alaska (UA) for sharing data and technical capacity among Alaskan, Arctic, and world communities.

Established in 2001 as an initiative of UA’s President, GINA promotes collaboration at the local, state, and federal levels by increasing community-wide participation in the discovery and use of geospatial data. GINA’s products and services greatly expand the range of available analysis capabilities in order to better address research and management requirements.

A nice writeup of an important project for UAF GINA and for near-real-time satellite data provision in Alaska. This project is taking our systems down the research-to-operations path, supporting a critical need for the NWS in Alaska.

Many thanks go out to our partners helping to make this succeed at NOAA NESDIS, NWS OST, and NWS Alaska Region.
