Chairman Deborah A.P. Hersman
National Transportation Safety Board
Closing Remarks
Geographic Information Systems in Transportation Safety
Washington, DC - December 5, 2012
(As Prepared for Delivery)


On behalf of my fellow Board members, I want to thank everyone who has participated in this forum — especially our panelists, who took the time to provide us with highly informative presentations and to answer our many questions.

This week's conference has shown us loudly, clearly and graphically that there are many tools in the safety toolkit and we are now far better informed about GIS and its many applications across transportation safety.

Many thanks to Ivan Cheung and the NTSB team for the great work putting this forum together.

We stand adjourned.
