Where are we with Urbanized Areas Webinar - FHWA

On Friday June 11, 2010 Federal Highway Administration in coordination with the Census Transportation Planning Products program will host a two hour webinar on the Census Bureau's plans for defining new Urban Areas.

These areas are important for transportation planning because of requirements for establishing MPOs and revisions to MPO boundaries, TMA designations, and roadway functional classification. This webinar is a follow on for those who could not attend a similar workshop held at the GIS-T Conference in West Virginia. In addition to discussing Urban Area boundary development, Census Bureau staff will discuss several other geographic related products and programs. Every 10 years following the decennial census the Census Bureau redefines Urban Areas. Urban Areas include both Urbanized Areas and Urban Clusters.

This webinar will begin promptly at 1:00 PM (Eastern) and run for 2 hours. It will include presentations along with time for question and answers. Topics covered will include:

  • A Brief Transportation Perspective on Census Geography, Ed Christopher (FHWA)
  • Discussion of the Proposed Urbanized Area Criteria, Mike Ratcliffe, Census Bureau Geography
  • Review of Census Geographic Area Programs and Products, Mike Ratcliffe, Census Bureau

Space is limited and advanced preregistration is necessary. If you are unsure that you will attend please do not register. If more than one person from a site can share one computer connection that will help make space for others. The webinar will be recorded for those who miss it.
