Dayne supports multiple research projects to build out cyberinfrastructure capacity across all three University of Alaska campuses. Dayne helps researchers and agency partners find solutions to manage, host and distribute data and services for research and operational use by a wide spectrum of general public, research, and operational users a variety of networks and systems in Alaska.

Dayne enjoys hacking on Linux systems and exploring new what new capabilities small system on a chip (SoC) computers, like Raspberry Pis, bring for fun projects at home and for real world applications.


(2013 era)

Dayne performs general and technical management, program development, and outreach for GINA. He manages the Statewide Digital Mapping Initiative (SDMI) technical services, the SDMI ortho mosaic program, and acts as the University’s representative on the SDMI technical advisory committee. Dayne Broderson has a background in computer science, linux hackery, system administration and random Ruby development before he was pulled into the Satellite, Geospatial Information Systems, Aerial Imagery, LiDAR and Project Management side of GINA. Just before Dayne received his BS in Computer Science from the University of Alaska Fairbanks, he was pulled into the satellite data processing world to work at the Alaska SAR Facility, now Alaska Satellite Facility.

Dayne joined GINA in 2003. He now spends his days answering a series of ‘quick questions’ from people across the hallway to across the world while trying to shove geospatial pixels into the right bucket.

STEM advocate. Even got an award for organizing STEM events including coordination of industry STEM partnership:

Vanessa and Dayne were instrumental in pulling together the Lockheed Martin / ASRC Federal STEM event at the University of Alaska Fairbanks in early August. These two worked tirelessly for a number of weeks to pull together the agenda, key attendees, and university resources in support of the event. Their direct support tied together teachers and administrators of local STEM programs with students at the geophysical institute who had participated in early STEM programs and who were bright, productive examples of STEM in action.

Over fifty people attended this successful STEM event, and without Dayne and Vanessa’s ideas, organizational skills and follow-through, the outcome would have been very different. On behalf of the ASRC Federal STEM team, I want to thank them for their outstanding efforts in support of our event.
