Designing Resilient Transportation Networks with GIS Webinar sponsored by ESRI.
There has been a “staggering rise” in the number of extreme weather events over the past 20 years, driven largely by rising global temperatures and other climatic changes. This has had a significant impact on our transportation systems, and transportation and environmental planners are facing ever-greater pressures to design more resilient infrastructure. Building resiliency into current transportation projects requires a solid understanding of future climatic change. Whether it's from sea level rise or from increases in precipitation, storm intensity, or temperature extremes, GIS can help you understand and plan for these changes in the environment. With GIS, you can design more resilient transportation systems for the future.
Join Terry Bills, Esri’s global transportation industry manager, along with a panel of experts from leading transportation agencies for a discussion on how GIS technology can serve as the foundation for building stronger and more resilient transportation networks.
This webinar will include:
- A discussion of how GIS allows you to analyze a wealth of data and determine the most environmentally positive and resilient transportation infrastructure
- Real-world examples of leading transportation agencies implementing GIS to build resiliency into their transportation systems
- Demonstrations of the GIS tools and solutions to help you get started
