Transportation institute researcher presents at national meetings
EunSu Lee, an associate research fellow with the Upper Great Plains Transportation Institute, recently presented research papers at two national meetings.
He presented a paper on the institute’s statewide freight modeling effort at the Transportation Research Board’s Strategic Highway Research Program Symposium in Washington, D.C., Oct. 21-22. Lee’s paper, “Statewide Freight Demand Modeling to Support Long-Range Transportation Planning in North Dakota,” was one of only 18 chosen for the symposium, which focused on strategies for integrating supply chain models and data into public-sector freight demand modeling.
Lee presented “Where Is the Next Drilling Location” at the GIS-Pro Annual Conference held by the Urban and Regional Information System Association at Providence, R.I., Sept. 16-19. The national association is for geographic information systems professionals. Lee’s paper described a method for predicting potential drilling sites in oil-producing regions for the next 20 years, a critical step in transportation planning for those regions.
