GIS for Transport Applications Workshop 2017

Back in 2015 the TGRG supported the first GIS for Transport Applications (GIS4TA) workshop in Leeds.

Fast forward two years and we’re happy to announce the second GIS4TA event, following the success of the first one, and support from the RGS.

The course will be an action-packed 2 day event taking place on the 16th and 17th November at the University of Leeds. The emphasis will be on practical workshops rather than presentations. And you’re expected to bring maps! Like the one below…
