Iteris and lowercase productions Presents “Sharing the Value of Big Data with Interactive Web Apps” Webinar on Tuesday, May 5, 2015 at 12 p.m. PDT

Traditionally, transportation system performance monitoring studies have been presented in printed reports and PDF documents. These static reports are not always the most effective way to communicate the large amounts of spatial and temporal data that results from big data performance monitoring. By visualizing this data as interactive charts and maps, we can create graphic representations that not only coalesce large data sets into visual patterns but present this information in a way that is easily understood by non-technical viewers. 

Please join Leon Raykin from Iteris and Daniel Reider from lowercase productions in this joint webinar to learn more about how Iteris and lowercase productions can help you fully share the value of Big Data.
