Welcome, Keynote Address and CalGIS Town Hall

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Welcome to the 25th Annual CalGIS event!
Hear from the chairs; learn about the not-to-miss sessions and events planned.

Esri, our Gold Sponsor, will also share an update and what to look forward to!

We're thrilled to then hear from our keynote speaker who will speak about "Disruptive Trends in Transportation". California is witnessing a revolutionary transformation of our transportation system.

The keynote will explore relevant research findings and address some of the following questions:

  • How are new modes being used, where, and by whom? What opportunities and challenges do they create?
  • How can we be proactive and/or reactive to the challenges and opportunities posed by new transportation technologies, new modes, new travelers, and new expectations? Will the private sector continue advancing quickly, developing new modes and new technology, while the public sector tries to keep pace with an often disruptive pace of change?
  • What private and public sector advancements have the potential to increase travel choices, reduce collisions, increase active transportation, and reduce greenhouse gases?
  • What can be done in the near-term, and what principles should inform our long-range planning efforts?

Then, Christina Boggs-Chavira will moderate an open mic forum to kick off conversations that can continue throughout CalGIS 2019 and beyond during a Town Hall session. What’s on your mind as a GIS practitioner in California? Social media participation is highly encouraged: @CalGIS, #CaliforniaGIS, and other hashtags of your choosing.

After the session, enjoy a coffee break in the foyer and check out the special display by the students of James Rutter Middle School in Sacramento.
