MichiganView is a state member of the AmericaView(AV) program, a nationwide program that focuses on satellite remote sensing data and technologies in support of applied research, K-16 education, workforce development, and technology transfer.
AmericaView is administered through a partnership between the U.S. Geological Survey and the AmericaView Consortium. The Consortium is the federal government's primary partner in achieving the AV Program vision and goals. The AmericaView Program is comprised of two complementary and interrelated activities:
- USGS AmericaView Program is an AV data infrastructure, data processing, and data delivery initiative administered by the USGS under the Land Remote Sensing (LRS) Program and carried out at USGS facilities. Primary activities for this effort are undertaken by the USGS Earth Resources Observation System (EROS) Data Center (Sioux Falls, South Dakota) in conjunction with other LRS priorities such as the Landsat Data Continuity Mission (LDCM).
- AmericaView Consortium is comprised of university-led, state-based consortia working together to build a nationwide network of state and local users. AmericaView supports the goals of the AV Program by further expanding communications networks, facilities, and capabilities for acquiring and sharing remotely sensed data among AmericaView members. The Consortium is actively working with the USGS and universities across the country to expand participation in the AV Program to all 50 states.
