GIS in Transportation—Research Road Map
ABJ60 is developing a strategic vision for the next 20 years of GIS-T research. Members, friends and anyone with an interest are invited to participate.
The foundations of this activity have been laid over the past 2-3 years, in a series of focused workshops. We consulted subject matter experts in GIS, transportation and computer science. We identified a need for sustained and directed research in GIS-T, and—borrowing from other successful initiatives in transportation—conceptualized a “Road Map” as the way forward.
The next task is to build the Road Map. We invite your input in this important process to conceptualize the future of GIS-T.
The Committee is grateful to FHWA for funding this initiative.

Introducing the Matrix
There will be many and varied takes on the Food for Thought above. The Matrix is a way to organize that content. Read up on the Matrix concept (strongly recommended for first-time visitors).
Write up your research need, or make a valuable impact critiquing other submissions. After the vetting process these contributions will become part of the Road Map. Interactive roadmap dialogue is courtesy of the Transit Informatics Group, Center for Urban Transportation Research.
