Timothy F. Trainor


Vice-President Timothy Trainor

As Chief of the Geography Division of the US Census Bureau, I am responsible for criteria and reference files for geographic entities in the United States, managing address and spatial data, fostering partnerships with other governments and commercial companies, mapping for data collection and dissemination operations, and standards development. I am passionate about the importance of statistical data to cartography and the agencies that collect the data in their NSDI role. I am actively engaged in topics such as data standards and infrastructures, crowdsourcing and VGI, visualization of statistical data, challenges for NMOs, a functional NSDI and effective data integration with thousands of partners. I also actively represent the ICA with the United Nations and PAIGH.
