2013 GIS in Transit Conference Program Unveiled

Des Plaines, Ill., July 30, 2013—URISA, the Transportation Research Board (TRB) and the National Center for Transit Research (NCTR) are pleased to provide program details for the 2013 GIS in Transit Conference. The conference will take place at the Keck Center of the National Academies in Washington, D.C. Early registration discounts are available until September 6 and reservations at the conference hotels will be accepted until August 30.

GIS in Transit is a unique conference specifically designed for transit planners, managers, researchers and GIS industry experts who are interested in sharing ways to use geographic and spatial analysis in transit planning, operations, and marketing to increase efficiency and effectiveness.

The conference will:

  • Provide GIS transit professionals an opportunity to learn from peers and industry experts (vendors, researchers, and practitioners)
  • Discuss emerging trends in geo-spatial analysis and transit informatics
  • Demonstrate the use of GIS data to improve transit efficiency and effectiveness
  • Provide a forum for public-private discussions about practical applications of new technologies

The conference program is organized into 15 sessions that feature presentations on the use of GIS to enhance service planning and improve transit performance, transit agency GIS innovations and applications, and opportunities for public-private partnerships to create practical applications of new technology. A poster session will also provide the opportunity for dialogue between conference participants and presenters on featured GIS applications.

Visit the conference website regularly for program details and additional information.

The conference thanks Esri and DTS in advance for their early commitment as conference sponsors.
