He manages the Statewide Digital Mapping Initiative (SDMI) technical services, the SDMI ortho mosaic program, and acts as the University's representative on the SDMI technical advisory committee. Dayne Broderson has a background in computer science, linux hackery, system administration and random Ruby development before he was pulled into the Satellite, Geospatial Information Systems, Aerial Imagery, LiDAR and Project Management side of GINA. Just before Dayne received his BS in Computer Science from the University of Alaska Fairbanks, he was pulled into the satellite data processing world to work at the Alaska SAR Facility, now Alaska Satellite Facility.
Dayne joined GINA in 2003. He now spends his days answering a series of 'quick questions' from people across the hallway to across the world while trying to shove geospatial pixels into the right bucket.
