AmericaView: National Land Remote Sensing Education, Outreach, and Research Activity

AmericaView is presently funded under the U.S. Geological Survey, National Land Imaging Program National Land Remote Sensing Education, Outreach, and Research Activity (NLRSEORA) grant activity. This five-year, $6.25m grant is aimed at empowering Earth observation education and the use of remotely sensed and geospatial data, across the United States. The AmericaView consortium, 39 active state-based members, are organized around public universities that strive to conduct outreach, education, and research to all age groups. Additionally, member states work to better understand the needs of local and state professionals and transmit that information to the federal level to improve the production of sensors, data, and processes.
