                Eonfusion enables quick and easy creation of geospatial visualizations using dynamic modeling and analytical methods that can move seamlessly through the time dimension as well as X, Y, Z and other user-defined dimensions. Useful for any geospatial problems needing flexible data fusion of raster, vector, multimedia and other data types, Eonfusion has been successfully used for flood modeling, weather and climate analysis, security, transportation, sports science, and both animal and human behavior analyses. In this webinar the lead software development team members will introduce you to the latest release features of Eonfusion using live demos of practical examples including the following: - Dynamic geospatial flood modeling using smoothed-particle hydrodynamics algorithms to interactively model the passage of waters. User-configurable workflows can include location of sources, flow rates, duration and “what-if” exploration by incorporating structures like dams, levees, buildings or flood mitigation structures. - Modeling of large numbers of moving objects through time such as for port security activity using Automatic Identification System (AIS) shipping data. Eonfusion’s ability to model changing relationships between objects through time based on positions, object types, spatial locations, nominal behavior pattern definition and more will be illustrated. - Eonfusion’s ability to fuse a wide variety of data types and to model using additional user-defined dimensions will be illustrated through examples incorporating video and other geospatial data to detect and model human behavior. Who should attend? Geospatial intelligence analysts, environmental analysts, engineers and planners and others who need to visualize complex data and scenarios throughtime as well as geography. More information on the product is available (2-pg. pdf). Speakers will include: - Dr. Matt Wilson, General Manager, Eonfusion Development - Dr. Warwick Gillespie, Manager, Customer Service and Support - Doug Gerull, Principal, Eonfusion, LLC

                  Join Chad Tucker, short range planning manager with the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), and Michael Dannehy, pre-sales consultant at TomTom, in a discussion on leveraging historic traffic data to improve highway safety and operations. Under a state mandate, VDOT embarked on a six-year improvement program to enhance highway safety and operations throughout the I-95/I-64 corridor. Through an independent highway and traffic safety study, VDOT determined issues within the I-95/I-64 corridor that posed potential risks to motor vehicle operators. (More on the case study (pdf), more on the data.) TomTom (formerly Tele Atlas), a provider of GIS historic traffic data and mapping solutions, partnered with VDOT in April 2012 to support the VDOT highway safety project. Tucker will share the ways VDOT used TomTom’s historic traffic data to help with its highway infrastructure planning. Dannehy will describe TomTom’s historic traffic capabilities and functionality, as well as the value proposition for state DOTs in using TomTom’s historic traffic data for infrastructure planning. Who should attend We are specifically addressing the interests of high ranking officials representing DOTs, plus CEOs, presidents and vice presidents of consulting companies working on government highway infrastructure projects. We also warmly welcome traffic planners and traffic engineers, anyone representing local, state and federal governments as staff or consultants working in any transportation or mobility function. GIS professionals involved in traffic/transportation applications will also find the material of interest and would benefit from attending.
