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.

Extended: Reduced satellite data and network outage for GINA to NOAA/NESDIS FCDAS
Posted 3 days ago

We are having problems bringing up the WAN network link between the NESDIS FCDAS facility and UAF campus. Unfortunately, the outage and reduced availability of satellite data will continue until tomorrow (Feb. 23). We hope to have the problem fixed in the morning.
