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.

Breakup is coming a bit late to Interior Alaska this year, but it has finally arrived. In the last couple of days the Yukon River has started breaking up between the communities of Fort Yukon and Circle. The Yukon river is large enough that the breakup can be observed on the MODIS and VIIRS imagery Circle we receive. The community of Circle had fairly serious flooding, the worst seen in recent history. Hopefully everyone down river of them will have a better time. For more VIIRS and MODIS imagery please take a look at our Puffin Feeder website.
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.
