AmericaView is a nationwide, university-based, and state-implemented network that advances Earth observation education through remote sensing science, applied research, workforce development, technology transfer, and community outreach. AmericaView is administered with support from Grant Number G23AP00683 (GY23-GY27) from the Department of Interior, United States Geological Survey. 

AmericaView’s primary goal is to support the many beneficial uses of remote sensing in service to society. The AmericaView Mission 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.” (AmericaView Charter, March 12, 2002) 



MarylandView is a full member of the AmericaView network that is housed in the Department of Geography and Environmental Planning at Towson University. The mission of MarylandView is to promote remote sensing education, research, and geospatial applications through cooperative partnerships with federal and state agencies, educational institutions, non-government organizations, and businesses in Maryland. 

MarylandView was developed to further one of the primary goals of AmericaView—educating the public about remote sensing technology and ensuring the fullest use of remotely sensed data through outreach. MarylandView is also working closely with collaborators to provide an additional portal to remotely sensed data and information in a public forum.

MarylandView proudly partners with NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Baltimore Tree Trust, Towson University Center for GIS (TU CGIS), City of Westminster, MD and the United States Geological Survey (USGS).
