Through National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) funding in August 2002, the NASA Nebraska Space Grant Consortium (NNSGC) hired a full-time Geospatial Extension Specialist (GES). Due to the state's strategic use of NASA and state funding in the past 12 years, there was considerable capacity in place in Nebraska to intensify geospatial research, education, and outreach efforts. This proposal, Nebraska NativeGEM (Geospatial Extension Model), features a unique diversity component stemming from the exceptional reputation NNSGC has built by delivering geospatial science experiences to Nebraska's Native Americans. NativeGEM addresses all three key components of Cooperative State Research, Education, and Extension service (CSREES) goals for advancing decision support, education, and workforce development through the GES. These goals are: (1) Improve, through the use of geospatial information, the decision support systems of users at local, county and state levels. (2) Improve education in remote sensing and related geospatial technology at the local, county and state levels. (3) Promote development of a workforce skilled in the use of geospatial technology and integrated with the staffs of user organizations. This report details the proposal features.
