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.

Augmented-reality sandbox brings topographical maps to life:
Augmented Reality Sandbox: Nice article in the local Fairbanks newspaper about the augmented reality sandbox GINA’s Greg Wirth put together. It’s on display at the Alaska Surveying and Mapping Conference this week in Fairbanks. More to follow…
GINA receives numerous geospatial data sets, many in real time. Information is then rapidly processed and managed for use by scientiﬁc researchers, state and federal agencies, and the general public.
GINA is involved with many Alaskan, Arctic and International projects. Our goal is to increase community-wide participation in the discovery and sharing of geospatial data.
GINA teams with partner institutions and agencies to create information products and services that are used in a variety of projects to better display and understand spatial information.
