MS2 attended the recent Geospatial Information Systems for Transportation (GIS-T) Symposium in Raleigh, North Carolina. As a vendor, we saw lots of our friends, software users and prospective clients.
We learned that annual HPMS data reporting is consuming the time of data monitoring professionals and planners in DOT GIS departments around the country. We also learned that ESRI's Roads and Highways software is increasingly popular with DOT's.
There were 28 technical sessions during the two days of the GIS-T conference
MS2 has mastered the process of integrating Roads and Highways with our traffic data management system. We have completed this integration for Indiana DOT and we are working on the same for the Ohio DOT. DOT planners and data monitoring professionals benefit when MS2 and ESRI products can talk to one another.
While it was great catching up with friends and vendors and hearing technical seminars, our favorite event was dinner amongst ancient dinosaur skeletons, caged live rattlesnakes, exhibits and the various fish aquariums at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Science. We dined on delicious Southern BBQ and read about the perilless, fabulously spatial, 2500 mile migration route of the Monarch butterfly.
