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.

An amazingly clear day over most of Alaska, as imaged by the Suomi NPP satellite. (7-Sept-2014 20:58 UTC. http://feeder.gina.alaska.edu/npp-gina-alaska-truecolor-images/2014_09_07_20_58_jd250)
GINA captures and distributes this data in near-real-time through the High Latitude Proving Ground with support from the NESDIS GOES-R and JPSS satellite program offices. Our flagship user is the Alaska Region National Weather Service.
Did I mention it was a truly beautiful autumn day here in Fairbanks yesterday?
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.
