About Us

The Mid-Atlantic Geospatial Transportation Users Group was established so transportation industry practitioners could share information and experiences.  The group has been meeting two to three times a year at various locations throughout the Mid-Atlantic area.  A collection of individuals sharing an interest in Geospatial Transportation topics has formed a steering committee to plan meetings and provide direction.

Steering Committee

The MAGTUG Steering Committee is a small, informal alliance of volunteers interested in furthering MAGTUG’s goals and promoting knowledge sharing and educational opportunities in geospatial technology for professionals supporting transportation in the Mid-Atlantic region.

We meet by teleconference (telephone and internet connection) once a month, for as little as half an hour, to update each other and coordinate our individual event plans.

Our Steering Committee teleconferences are help on the last Tuesday or Wednesday of each month. The next one is scheduled for:

Wed Aug 30 @ 1 p.m.

Dial-in Number: 515-739-1406 US, Access Code: 933395
