The Mid-Atlantic Geospatial Transportation Users Group (MAGTUG) helps transportation professionals stay abreast of advances in geospatial technology and assists GIS professionals navigate transportation-specific issues (pun intended) by promoting events where we may share knowledge, news and successful practices with each other.
The Group organizes meetings 2-3 times a year and also hosts a webinar series on pertinent Geospatial and Transportation topics providing information to help Engineer, Inventory, Manage, Plan, and Innovate our local transportation systems. More about MAGTUG…
Our website is undergoing upgrades. Stay tuned for some great changes!
To support our community of geospatial transportation professionals, MAGTUG maintains this calendar of virtual and in-person meetings, seminars, and conferences in the Mid-Atlantic and beyond to keep you apprised of training and information exchange opportunities. Not all events are sponsored or organized by the Group but offer excellent prospects for professional development.

Asset management is critical for many government agencies to manage their street assets. A.I. and machine learning technology is expanding to automate government work-flows which have traditionally required significant investments in field work, manual intervention, and data analysis. This session hosted by Muthu Sampath will showcase real-world examples of the benefits of street-level imagery and the power of A.I. in scaling up data collection and extraction for asset inventory, site surveys, property appraisals and other resource-intensive operations.
