About GINA

Established in 2001 as an initiative of UA’s President, the Geographic Information Network of Alaska (GINA) focuses on remote sensing and geographic information systems activities for Alaska and its surrounding oceans.

GINA collaborates with federal, state, and academic partners to serve this data through public portals. An inventory of satellite images over the state of Alaska is available online and these images can be freely downloaded.
