US: AmericaView, a university-led, state-based consortium designed to promote remote sensing science and technology, was awarded a grant of $1 million National Land Remote Sensing Education Outreach and Research Activity by the US Geological Survey this week through a competitive process. Administered by the USGS Land Remote Sensing Program, the grant has renewable options for up to five years (i.e. potentially up to $5m over that period).
Through this grant AmericaView will identify the research and remote sensing needs of participating states in order to help the USGS better understand the broader information requirements of remote-sensing data user communities.
