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.

UAF gets $1.7 million grant for Weather Service upgrades:
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.

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.
