Introduction


AlabamaView is a newly formed statewide consortium affiliated with the nationwide AmericaView program. The goal of the AlabamaView program is to advance the availability, timely distribution, and widespread use of remote sensing data and technology through education, research, outreach and sustainable technology transfer to the public and private sectors. AlabamaView was officially launched in January of 2004 with Auburn University serving as the Member of Record. The consortium is in the development stages with the immediate goals of creating a web-based infrastructure for cost-effective and timely access to remotely sensed data for the state of Alabama. Longer-term goals are to serve as a linkage among the Alabama remote sensing community, promote awareness of remote sensing in K-16, to develop new applications using remote sensing, and to extend the applications to the user community. Current partners include Auburn University, Jacksonville State University, U.S. Space and Rocket Center, Alabama Natural Heritage Program, Global Hydrology and Climate Center, Alabama Cooperative Extension System, and the Alabama Space Grant Consortium.
