The goal of the Intermountain Region Digital Image Archive Center (IRDIAC) is to assist research, land management and educational institutions with the development of tools and decision support systems for natural resource management using remote sensing. The archive also stores, processes, and disseminates, through the Internet, remotely sensed information to state and federal collaborators and the public within the Intermountain Region. Information delivery is focused on the integration with natural resource monitoring programs and decision support systems to aid managers, scientists, and policy makers identify landscape change, determine causative factors, and develop management strategies. The focus of our research addresses 5 of the 12 NASA national priority application areas, namely Agricultural Efficiency, Carbon Management, Ecological Forecasting, Invasive Species, and Water Management.
