Suchi Gopal pens editorial for Department of Transportation

Professor Suchi Gopal has written the editorial “The Internet of Things (IoT) for GIS in Transportation” for the newsletter published by the U.S. Department of Transportation. GIS for transportation is experiencing technological innovations with an increasing use of wireless communication, which is the cornerstone of smart city and smart transport (IoT). This technology offers significant benefits in terms of traceability, adaptability, real-time monitoring, and efficiencies in transportation. R&D is needed to combine geospatial functionalities with transport modeling while providing an efficient, interactive, visual interface for data exploration, manipulation, analysis, and visualization.
