NTSB Geographic Information System Public Meeting

The National Transportation Safety Board will hold a public meeting on the use of the Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in transportation safety on December 4 and 5, 2012. GIS is a rapidly expanding group of technologies and analytical techniques that uses geographically referenced data to support complex data integration, advanced statistical analysis, precise investigation, and effective visualization of data. The meeting will bring researchers and practitioners in transportation safety and GIS together to discuss how GIS data, technologies, and techniques are applied to improve transportation safety.  They will identify emerging themes, current challenges, and potential solutions in using GIS in transportation safety.  The meeting will include eight panels, with experts from government agencies, research institutes, non-profit organizations, and industry covering all modes of transportation.
