The American Geographical Society will explore how new and emerging innovations in mobility will reshape the geography of our nation and our world. The Geography 2050 Symposium will focus on the Future of Mobility – how mobility innovations will reshape our world’s geography, how these innovations change our basic perception of space and time, and how the geospatial revolution will help drive this revolution in mobility. By exploring these vital future trends, the Society seeks to help thought leaders and decision makers from industry, government, academe, and the social sector to “get ahead of the curve” so that they can help shape the future of mobility to make the world a better place.
Join SpaceTime’s Chris Horacek on Friday, November 17, as he and his panel will explore “How Geospatial Technologies are Shaping the Future, and Vice Versa”. Chris’ prepared comments will focus on how transportation companies can leverage advanced analytics to keep ahead of the accelerating pace of e-commerce. The next generation of mobility solutions will reshape the geography of our planet in the coming decades. Innovations in geospatial technology and data are at the very core. Mobility and geography have always been inextricably linked, but the geospatial revolution has unleashed possibilities in mobility that few imagined practical only a couple decades ago. Chris’ session will focus on the kinds of geospatial technological innovations that are helping us realize a future for mobility that will transform how we live our lives, and how we value both human life and our planet’s sustainability.
