Get Moving! Transport your Network to the Next Level with GIS

Event Details

The URISA BC team is busy planning our next seminar which will be held at the Hilton Vancouver Metrotown in Burnaby, B.C.

Join us on February 21, 2019 for URISA BC's one day seminar to see how organizations are using GIS technologies to improve mobility around the province!

When asked, people place mobility as a top concern in their community. The ability to get from one place to another quickly and efficiently has a significant impact on residents' quality of life; from the cost of travel to the amount of time they have with family and friends. 

The latest advances in Geographic Information Systems and related technology devices have enabled organizations from all sectors to enhance the design, performance and interactivity of transportation services, to reduce costs and resource consumption and to increase communication among organizations, government and citizens.

Realtime data, systems integration, cloud computing, predictive and advanced analytics, communication and feedback, sensors and IoT data are just a few areas of recent technology advancement. We want to hear from you about how your organization is enhancing mobility within your region!
